Mormons -- Fiction; Logan (Utah) -- Fiction; Love stories, American
It’s the late 1870s, and Lizzy Sullivan is struggling to understand why God hasn’t healed her little brother David. Then one night, tragedy strikes Lizzy’s family when their rural home burns down. Financially unable to rebuild, the Sullivans must find another place to live—and Lizzy must leave her lifelong friend Joshua behind.
When a family in Logan invites the Sullivans to share their home, Lizzy’s father begins work as a mason on the Logan temple. Against her mother’s wishes, Lizzie begins a relationship and falls in love with Abe, a young man who is not a member of the Church. Little does Lizzy realize that Abe and her dear friend Joshua, who both work in the quarries, will soon become close friends—and she will be forced to choose between these two good men. What does she truly want in her life?
House on the Hill, by best-selling author Annette Lyon, will sweep you back in time to a faithful community where life was simpler than it is today, but matters of the heart were every bit as complex. [publisher's blurb]
