Daughter of Helaman 2 - Fight for You

This book is number two in the Daughter of Helaman Trilogy. It's called Fight for You by Misty Moncur.

Misty Moncur:
Misty Moncur wanted to be Indiana Jones when she grew up. Instead, she became an author and has her adventures at home. In her jammies. With her imagination. And pens that she keeps running dry.

Misty lives in a marsh near a very salty lake in Utah with her husband and children, where they cuddle up in the evenings and read their Kindles. Well, she does anyway.

Her Book:


Keturah fought her way into the army, but now she's in Judea building fortifications, and the only thing she's fought so far is boredom. The work is hard, and the other soldiers don't think she can pull her weight. Her brothers are becoming strangers, and Zeke's jealousy is getting worse - because Keturah is falling in love with the wrong warrior.

But she's not about to let cruel pranks and hurt feelings keep her from doing what she knows to be right. She completes every order with faithfulness - a hasty retreat from the Lamanite army, a spy mission into the enemy stronghold, a midnight assassination. From burying the dead to whiling away hours on guard duty, Keturah will do whatever it takes to protect her religion, her freedom, her peace, and her family.

But in a camp of two thousand boys, the most important thing she has to protect is her heart.





My Review:

I did not read the first book in this series and was therefore a bit nervous to jump into this one, but since I know the real life events that this book is based on, it made it easier to follow. It was an easy read and I found myself planning to read "one more page" and stopping some 10 pages later than I planned. Misty did a great job at putting her own twist on this story and bringing it to live in her own way. The main character, Keturah, was likable, spunky, and fun. I enjoyed reading this book and would easily recommend it to anyone who enjoys a novel where courage, romance, battles, and faith are all intertwined. (Note: I would suggest reading the first book before this one though. I was still a bit lost on the characters as first since I hadn't read the events that took place prior to this story. But still a great story!)


Misty's tour will be continuing until September 24th. Go check out what others have to say about her book, and also enter a give away on Misty's website: http://mistymoncur.blogspot.com
