I read this book as a manuscript - I loved it! So did my entire book club. It was fun to see it published. It is available for your e-reader only though (good for some!).

Really loved this YA historical fiction. It made the Book of Mormon seem more real as I was able to "look inside" things that could have happened. While I am aware it is fiction, it was quite enjoyable. I also love Orson Scott Cards books on women of the old testament. Same idea, and it was fun to see it done with the Book of Mormon.
