Every story must have a beginning.
If mine were to be told, it would begin two lifetimes ago, before a queen gave me my freedom and I moved from land to land looking for a place where I belonged. It would begin before death ripped out my heart. But it would not be my story alone. It would tell of a proud people brought low and of a low people exalted, because my tale is only a thread that has somehow become entwined in the tapestry that has unfolded around me.
And so begins the intensely emotional, richly spiritual odyssey of Abish, whose significant contribution to Book of Mormon history is creatively depicted in this finely crafted story of love, loss, and redemption.
This is a story of one woman’s courage in the face of life-threatening dangers, of faith that triumphs over fear, and of an all-encompassing love that changes the lives and spiritual destiny of thousands — Nephites and Lamanites alike.
Gifted LDS author K.C. Grant demonstrates a profound understanding of the time, setting, and people that provide the backdrop to this compelling and inspiring narrative — an intricate tale of suspense, romance, intrigue, and spiritual triumphs.

I bought this book for my wife, but ended up reading it myself over the weekend. There was a fast-moving plot, lots of action and I liked seeing how this story unfolded through the eyes of a woman.
'Abish' finds her voice
by Customer - reviewed on January 25, 2010
How wonderful that this lesser-known character from the Book of Mormon has finally been given a voice to tell her story. Not only will you be touched by her story of heartbreak and triumph, but you will also be swept away by the rugged beauty of the land which is the setting for this novel. A story of courage, love and faith, it was captivating from beginning to end.
