Based on the best selling series by Gerald N. Lund
When Benjamin Steed (Sam Hennings, The Aviator) and Mary Ann Steed (Brenda Strong, Seinfeld) relocate their family to upstate New York in the early 1800's, they unwittingly settle in a town divided along religious lines. After their new hired help turns out to be at the center of the uproar, each member of the Steed family must come to terms with their own beliefs in the face of heavy persecution. Together they struggle to weather the raging controversy surrounding a young man named Joseph Smith.
Two hundred years after the birth of the Prophet Joseph Smith, The Work and the Glory blends high-powered fiction with the historical reality of the Restoration. Heralded by Sean P. Means of the Salt Lake Tribune as "a well-crafted epic," this gripping tale has won the approval of critics and audiences nationwide.
