Karlinah' first marriage left her with heavy secret to carry as she returns home after her husband's death. A secret she dares not share with anyone. But things at home don't offer as much relief as she had hoped when her father betroths her to a man she distrusts so that her younger sister can wed. The arrival of a young Nephite complicate everything. But Ammon turns out to be different than she expected and the upheaval he brings offers hope that she may be able to choose her own path. But she's reluctant to accept the gospel since it means confessing her secret, a secret she fears could cost her own life. Mackley has written a compelling story that revolves around events recounted in The Book of Mormon. I thoroughly enjoyed getting to know Karlinah and imagining what it might have been like to be there when the incredible events surrounding Ammon's mission to the Laminates took place. The incredible workings of the Lord have been beautifully depicted in this story which does have romantic elements in it but which come second to the changes that Karlinah and her family undergo when they listen to Ammon's message. A truly engaging work of fiction that takes the scriptural story and adds details about what it may have been like to be there. I really enjoyed this book and recommend it highly.
