From the Publisher’s Website:
When Camilla Deardon hears their songs coming on a breeze, they sound just like the songs in her own church. This is all she knows of the Mormons camping near her family’s farm. Mama and Papa warned her to stay away, but she doesn’t understand their fear, especially after meeting a young Mormon man named Nathan Fox. So handsome. So charming. His eyes hold the very image of this Zion he talks about, and his step seems a promise to take her there.
About the Author:
Allison Pittman is very familiar with the world of Mormonism. Her husband left it to become a Christian in high school and she grew up in Utah, the center of Mormonism in America. She now lives in San Antonio, the site of a new Mormon temple.
So when Allison writes an emotional story of a woman married to a member of the Mormon church–when she pens a story so gripping you don’t even realize you’re being shown the stark differences between Mormonism and Christianity, so deep are you within this woman’s heart and mind–readers are about to lose a night of sleep.
I will admit to a certain fascination with the Morman religion. I have done a fair bit of reading on it, it’s origins and it’s founders. I guess it’s the unknown. Coming from a Catholic upbringing and having a curious mind I just want to learn about what I don’t know.
I went into this book with an open mind and the first half was very interesting. The story was good and the writing is also good. But the second half when our protagonist starts to doubt her new religion and she turns back to her earlier traditional Christian learning it was rather like getting hit over the head with a large, heavy Bible. I guess I would have wanted a touch more subtlety.
The ending is fantastic, though and draws you right into the next book. Fortunately there is a teaser for that book included.
