Product Description

When two American Missionaries visit the English village of Throstleford in the early 1840s, they forever change the life of the village — and of the villagers. Esther Grey and her father, the local vicar, are the first to receive copies of the Book of Mormon. Both recognize truth in the book, but recoil from the challenges this knowledge brings. Esther knows that accepting the message would be a betrayal of her dear father. Yet how can she deny the truth that burns in her heart? Permeated with faith, charm, and romance, Throstleford is a sensitive, finely-drawn novel that brings to life the wondrous power of testimony, the real meaning of struggle, and the value of a sanctuary you can call your own.

I just logged in to see if there is a sequel to this, I didn't want it to end..... but no, I don't see one. I really enjoyed this story, with all it's great characters. Took me back to my own conversion.

Loved it!!

Susan Evans McCloud is one of my favorite authors! I can always count on a great read from her. I love how she "paints pictures with words"...her descriptions just reach out and pull me into the story and I always feel like I'm there. Her stories are heartwarming and real. She can draw real emotion from my heart.
Throstleford was great! I loved it! Her testimony was woven throughout the story and she even used one of her characters to portrait the true life story of her great great great grandmother (note at the end of the book). This book is definitely worth reading!
