I LOVE THIS SERIES!
Trials, fears, and hardships are endured on both ends of the generational divide...
But each learns that family and dear friends is what it is all about.
A connection from the past into the future...
Knowing that we only become stronger when we do what needs to be done...
But joyous blessings are promised to those that persevere.
You will read of how Will and Liz are forced to leave their beloved city of Nauvoo...
The struggle and decision for Will to join the Mormon Battalion...and how Liz goes on to the west with the help of her sisters.
"How many sacrifices will be required in order for the Saints to create Zion?"
Then you read the parallel story of Will and Liz's descendant, Jeff and his wife Abby, as they face the hardships of work and Church callings and lack of time as their lives become too busy.
"It is clear that building Zion in the latter days will require sacrifices, just as it did in the time of Jeff's ancestors."
"In this concluding volume of the Come to Zion trilogy, beloved novelist Dean Hughes provides a unique perspective on the struggles and sacrifices—and ultimate joy—of faithful Saints in any generation."
SO AMAZINGLY GOOD!
A TRUE MUST-READ!
