"A Lost Faith Is Never Too Far Gone"
Serena is devastated when her lifelong friend, Aminadab, is banned from Zarahemla for abandoning his faith and persecuting the saints. To add to her despair, she loses the rare ruby her father entrusted to her and she feels all is lost.
Unbeknownst to her, Aminadab finds the ruby, and takes it as his only reminder of Serena. As an outcast, Aminadab and his company of dissenters seek refuge among the Lamanites, who happen to be the very people who killed his parents. Not only is his anxiety high for being surrounded by these bloodthirsty people, but he quickly discovers he’s in the middle of a Gadianton plot to start a war between the Nephites and Lamanites.
Selling the ruby soon becomes the only option Aminadab has at escaping the volatile life he finds himself in. However, this act might forever banish him from ever being in Serena’s graces again.
In D Vansen’s Book of Mormon adventure, Aminadab must choose which side he’s on in a reflective journey of self-discovery, while Serena must stay faithful and hold onto the hope that a lost faith is never too far gone.
This book was super enjoyable! Having some background in LDS fiction I was a bit skeptical at first about reading this. I've seen good, I've seen bad, and I've seen .... other. But this one did surprise me by being really enjoyable to read without being super preachy, and the characters were people I could like. I actually wanted to know their story and what happened. The events made for a great story that didn't lag, but were also easy to follow. The descriptions were fantastic, and I could see the jungle camps and the process of the characters through the wilderness and the cities. I was very pleased with it and would read it again. Well done Author D. Vansen, you wrote a very lovely book!
D Vansen lives in Northern Utah with her family. After serving a LDS mission, she developed a love for the Book
of Mormon and its eternal truths. She claims that if you ever want the scriptures and its characters to come to life,
plot a novel from them. She loves all things artistic, unless it involves combining food ingredients. Thank heavens
she has children that will help with that specific talent.
