In the conclusion of the trilogy, the story of early black pioneers comes full circle as Aidan Gray looks down Parley Street in Nauvoo, Illinois—the same street where Elijah Abel and Jane Manning James walked more than 160 years earlier.
Here we beet Ab Howell, Monroe Fleming, Ruffin Bridgeforth, and other African-American Latter-day Saint pioneers. Courageous men and women who laid a lasting foundation of faith in the Lord, Jesus Christ, and His gospel.
This is an astonishing fictionalized account of real people and their story of loyalty in the face of trials, steadfast courage in times of humiliation, and obedience in an era of deprivation will fill you heart with compassion and understanding.
