Sarah Williams is a young Welsh immigrant, coming to Utah to join her sister Mary Ann Perkins. When the Perkins are asked to join the San Juan mission to pioneer a trail through Southern Utah, they take Sarah along to help care for the children. But a six-week journey turns into six agonizing months of hard work and toil as the Saints blast their way through a cliff to bring their wagons through what would become the famous Utah landmark “Hole in the Rock.”
Finally settled in the San Juan, Sarah’s true hardship begins when Ben Perkins asks her to be his second wife. With their faith and testimonies challenged to the core, both Sarah and Mary Ann struggle to find the true meaning of Christ-like love and obedience. Will they make it through?
Wow! This sounds great, especially the second part. I can’t help wondering how Tristi handles the polygamy issue.
How do you insert the rating stars on your blog?
I liked this book. It was fascinating to read about all the trials they faced. Very inspirational.
This was a great book! It really made me think and I loved how I could visualize what life was like for the characters. Reminded me a lot of the series, “The Work and The Glory” – with different circumstances, time period, and characters.
Definitely a book worth reading!
I liked it a lot!
(And you need to totally ignore the fact that I wrote it … that has nothing to do with the fact that I liked it, I promise.)
Tristi is definitely my favorite LDS author right now. I love historical fiction which is hard enough to write but to use your own actual family must be even harder! I thought the issue of polygamy was handled tastefully. I may be inspired to try my own hand at writing again!
