The 4th volume in the Promised Land series revolves around a holy Jewish day known as the Feast of Trumpets, which is also known as the Day of Remembrance. Set in three different time periods (the Old World in 600 B.C., early 1800's Jerusalem, and the time period in which Joseph Smith is visited by Moroni and begins his tutelage before receiving the gold plates), the novel beautifully demonstrates God's love for his children and his immaculate planning that was set in place before the world began. As Nephi and his brothers must make the journey back to Jerusalem for the brass plates, Jeremiah the prophet is anxious to add his important prophecies to the brass plates to be preserved for an important purpose. Baruch the scribe puts himself in grave danger to assist Jeremiah, Zoram, and Elizabeth (daughter of Jonathan the blacksmith) in this holy task. Meanwhile, Laban's plans to use his inherited relics (the sword of Joseph and the brass plates) to usurp the throne from Zedekiah consume his every action and thought, and the danger to any who oppose his plans increase. What sacrifices will have to be made in order to ensure that Israel remembers her covenants with the Lord in times to come? Amazing, amazing book. Probably my favorite volume yet.
