Mormons--Fiction; Indians of North America--Fiction; Arizona--Fiction
Abraham Franklin feels like an outcast in every sense of the word. As an American Indian living in the Utah Territory--and not a member of the Mormon Church--Abe faces everything from simple ignorance to outright bigotry. To make matters worse, the only woman he has ever loved has chosen to marry his best friend. It is past time for Abe to start his life over.
At the urging of his devout mother, Abe settles in Snowflake, Arizona, where he promptly meets Maddie Stratton. Maddie is at first wary of Abe, yet she detects a sensitivity and goodness beneath his embittered exterior and they soon become friends. As Maddie draws ever closer to Abe, he begins to push her away, knowing that her faith--and his lack of faith--will prove to be too large a barrier to result in happiness.
From tender matters of the heart and the anguish of a life-threatening accident to the gentle whisperings of the Spirit, author Annette Lyon completes the powerful story of Abraham Franklin, which began in the best-selling novel House on the Hill. At once romantic and adventurous, At the Journey's End is a captivating story of love and loss, sacrifice and, eventually, understanding. (Publisher website)
