Read Chapter One
In a farmhouse in Virginia in 1902, ten-year-old Ginny is horrified when her drunken father beats her pregnant mother. She orders him out of the house - and he goes, never to return.
The new baby, Lily, gets desperately ill, and Ginny remembers what a friend once told her: When things are at their worst, that's when angels come.
So Ginny prays - and two missionaries appear at their door. They give the baby a blessing and leave a Book of Mormon, which stays on the shelf, unread.
Years later, on a job in Salt Lake City, Lily boards for a year in the home of two "sisters," Aunt Lizzy and Aunt Sarah - widows of the same polygamous husband. Lily finds herself plunged into the heart of Mormonism, as one particular Mormon finds his way into her heart.
The story comes full circle when Lily's granddaughter, Rosemary, falls in love with ... Donny Osmond! But because of that Book of Mormon on the shelf in Grandma's house, her conversion means more than just the dreams of a teenage girl.
This first novel by Denise Tucker continues the tradition of Hatrack River Publications: wonderful stories by the best new writers in the Church.
