I loved this captivating and beautiful novel with endearing characters, a lot of real history, and a compelling story.

In The Rosefields of Zion the reader enters seamlessly into another time (the early 20th Centuy) and place--Southern Utah and Zion National Park (now--not then). There are poetic descriptions of the area, and accurate details about the era that make the story so real. She based her novel on an actual family, and created her own endearing fictitious one. Marissa, her heroine, is just that--a heroine for rising above the difficult circumstances and even the less than ideal outcome of her life. There was enough mystery, intrigue, and surprise in the plot to keep you turning the pages. Ms. Brown is an extremely talented writer who will surely take her place among the great Mormon writers of her time. I loved The Rosefields of Zion!

I was disappointed

I was really excited to read this book, but was sadly disappointed by the material. The author added a suggestive bedroom scene that made me feel really uncomfortable and there was some crude language as well.

Gripping story set in a beautiful location

I have read alot of Marilyn's books, and they all have a certain beauty about them that could be descriptive, on one hand and historical on another hand. She really does her home work when it comes to researching the history of a location. And she writes about the places in a most beautiful manner. This book has all that beauty. You feel like you want to go to southern Utah and learn more of the history of the people there. She also has endearing characters in this book. And, an exciting gripping plot that never lets you down. The momentum is there with a complex plot with many twists and turns. It is a romantic, historical and mystery book all at the same time. I enjoyed it immensely.
