Good or bad the choices we make in our lives will also affect others. This book made me sad.

“The Rosefields of Zion” is romantic novel set in historic Zion National Park and the St. George area of Utah. It’s definitely a book women will enjoy more than men or teens. It is written for the LDS reader, but could be enjoyed by readers not familiar with the religion or culture of the Mormons in 1920s Utah.

Would really give it about 1 1/2 stars. I didn't really enjoy the story. It felt flat and not very satisfying. Had a lot more sexual content than what would be expected with LDS fiction. The Michael/Marissa relationship was very weird and uncomfortable.

The bits of information about Zion becoming a national park and some surprise plot twists were all that made this book even a 2 star. I was uncomfortable with many of the moral issues in this book and would not feel comfortable loaning the book to anyone.

Well written novel that preserves many of the stories and legends of the Zion National Park area while telling a fictional story that was interesting and surprising.

One of the worst books I've read. Had no clue what was really going on 70 pages in. No description of characters. Horrible ending-if it can be called an ending.
