"Abinidi"


I have gotten to know some writers via the internet. It's been a really fun experience. One day I was at my Mother-in-Law's house when I saw this book, "Abinidi" by H.B. Moore. I was real excited to say that I had been to that author's blog and had really wanted to read that book. My MIL had read it and really enjoyed it, so she let me borrow it. I loved the book, so of course I had to tell the author!! She is so nice and even agreed to let me interview her for the Mormon mommy writer blog I belong to. So be sure to go to www.mormonmommywriters.blogspot.com to see the interview. Here's a summary of the book.
Raquel has a secret. As the daughter of one of King Noah’s priests, she enjoys a luxurious life and the admiration of powerful men. But her heart belongs to a commoner, a man with no earthly wealth but rich heavenly gifts. When King Noah demands that Raquel join his harem, she flees the only life she has known and marries her secret love. His name is Abinadi.
The couple finds abundant joy in their community of believers and in their firstborn son. But when the Lord calls Abinadi as His prophet, their faith is tested to the outermost limits. Abinadi’s commitment to the Lord requires them both to give their all—even unto death. Yet if Alma, the newest priest in King Noah’s court, chooses to overcome his troubled past and cleave unto the truth, their sacrifice may yield rich fruit.
With vivid detail and poignant emotion, this historical novel pulls readers into a fiery tale of love, courage, and faith that is difficult to put down and impossible to forget.
So go right on out and get this book! You won't regret it!
