The Relief Society Monument to Women at Nauvoo, Illinois, was created and erected as a tribute to all women. Thirteen life-sized sculptures, created by Dennis Smith and Florence Hansen, have been erected there in a majestic garden setting. Individually, the sculptures voice a statement on specific roles that women play. Collectively, they paint a vision of the circle of her influence. Their beauty and workmanship are an inspiration to all who experience them. This book, A Woman’s Love, is the third in a series of three containing those Nauvoo Monuments to Womanhood. The five cross-stitch patterns it contains are: (1) Family Circle [138 sqs. x 99 sqs.]; (2) In Her Mother’s Footsteps [71 sqs. x 140 sqs.]; (3) Preparing Her Son [61 sqs. x 146 sqs.]; (4) Courtship [96 sqs. x 115 sqs.];and (5) Joseph and Emma [87 sqs. x 139 sqs.]. Comprehensive directions and drawings are prepared for each project.
