Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A shroud of secrecy cloaks a new nineteenth-century sect known simply as the Saints ... but that veil is about to be drawn away.

Amidst the Majestic Beauty of 1857 Utah, the members of one secluded religious group claim to want nothing more than to practice their beliefs without persecution. Yet among them are many who engage in secret vows and brutal acts of atonement... all in the name of God.

But one young woman, Hannah McClary, dares to question the truth behind the shroud. Soon Hannah and the young man she loves — Lucas Knight, who has been trained from childhood to kill on behalf of the Church — find themselves fighting for their very lives.

As a group of unwary pioneer families marches into Utah toward a tragic confrontation with the Saints at a place called Mountain Meadows, Hannah and Lucas are thrust into the most difficult conflict of all — a battle for truth and justice — even as they are learning for the first time about unconditional love, acceptance, and forgiveness.

Diane Noble is the popular author of numerous historical novels (writing as Amanda MacLean), as well as contemporary romantic mysteries. She and her husband Tom, a history professor, live in Southern California, where they divide their time between Sierra Madre and their mountain retreat in Idyllwild.

Synopsis:

Set in Utah of the mid-1850s — and based on an actual event involving the concept of blood atonement and a resulting massacre of innocent pioneers — this historical novel explores the struggles that ensue when the truth is locked away behind a shroud of secrecy. Powerful, historically accurate fiction with a timeless message.
