Every story must have a beginning. If mine were to be told, it would begin two lifetimes ago: before a queen gave me my freedom and I moved from land to land looking for a place where I belonged. It would begin before death ripped out my heart. But it would not be my story alone. It would tell of a proud people brought low and of a low people exalted, because my tale is only a thread that has somehow become entwined in the tapestry that has unfolded around me.
Will anyone think to tell my part in it?
And so begins the intensely emotional, richly spiritual odyssey of Abish, whose significant contribution to Book of Mormon history is creatively depicted in this finely crafted story of love, loss, and redemption.
This intricate tale of suspense, romance, intrigue, and spiritual triumphs is a story of one woman’s courage in the face of life-threatening dangers, of faith that triumphs over fear, and of an all-encompassing love that changes the lives and spiritual destiny of thousands—Nephites and Lamanites alike.
