When Emmeline confides to Lydia that she has been reading the Book of Mormon, Lydia is shocked and dismayed. How could her best friend, a solid, honest person, believe in something so blasphemous as new scripture and modern prophets? Lydia knows she can never accept Emmeline's new faith, but out of respect for her friend, she agrees to read the book. And the more she reads, the more she comes to realize that there is a power about the book she cannot deny - no matter how much she'd like to.
Neither could have known the consequences for accepting a faith as unpopular as Mormonism. Although their new religion is shunned by the masses, these women find that the greatest persecution comes from their own families, their own husbands. As the persecution mounts, both are faced with the same chilling choice: family, friends, and fortune - or faith?
Set in nineteenth century England, Horse Stone House is a story of hope and sacrifice which shows that no price is too great to pay for the gospel of Jesus Christ. [from publisher's website]
