Daniel Webster Jones doesn’t know what to think of the Mormons. His preacher uncle says they are trouble. His father tells him to look for God in nature and not in a stifled church. Still, the young boy growing up in Missouri during times of religious persecution wasn’t sure who or what he believed.
But when Daniel’s Mormon friend Emily and her family are driven from their home by an angry mob and he finds himself orphaned, Daniel must seek God—and his future—on his own.
Winter’s Promise is the emotional story of one man’s quest to find himself, and a young woman’s pursuit of her lost love. The story, set against the backdrop of early Latter-day Saint history, follows Daniel and Emily as they separately journey across the rugged West in search of happiness and hope.
