A new king has ascended the throne of Judah, Jerusalem is ripe with iniquity, and prophets warn of impending destruction. These things alone are enough to trouble the heart of a young woman, but Ishmael’s youngest daughter, Rachel, has other—more personal—problems to deal with as well.
It infuriates her that her family treats her like a child. It’s even worse that Nephi, who she secretly loves, sees her like the little sister he never had. But just when his feelings for her seem about to change, everything else changes, too. Suddenly, Rachel finds herself swept up in a tumultuous series of unexpected events. And in the sometimes terrifying days ahead, only faith, courage, and a firm grip on the iron rod will be enough to pull her through.
