In 1845, Nauvoo, Illinois was a bustling city of Latter-day Saints, but an exodus was on the horizon. Mobs riddled Nauvoo and threatened to burn the city if the Saints didn’t leave.
Goodbye, Nauvoo is based on the lives of three real women from a pioneer family: Martha, a young mother who wants nothing more than to see the completion of the Nauvoo temple and to keep her family together; Lydia, who doesn’t believe she could ever let herself love again after the death of her husband Danny; and Lucy, who wrestles with her own past demons as she struggles to parent her daughters. All three women learn about love, family, and forgiveness in a town they can no longer call home.
