What began as a picture-perfect summer vacation for college student Jenny Brodie has swiftly become a nightmare. When she left home on the back of her horse one sunny morning, she couldn’t have imagined what awaited her in the Utah desert. Now the darkness is closing in, and there is no way out. The woman saw what he did—she witnessed the shots he fired, the murder he committed. But she’ll never talk. He’s made sure of that. For a man desperate to hide his crimes, the pressure steadily rises as Jenny’s community bands together to find the missing young woman. As the searchers grow ever closer to discovering what he has hidden, so too does his desperation. He will stop at nothing to keep the woman hidden—but he has underestimated the second witness to his evil deeds: a young girl determined to protect Jenny. As the trail runs cold, will help come for Jenny before time runs out?
Jenny set out one day to enjoy exercising her horse, which was long overdo. She, also, hoped to stop by a sadly neglected girl who was a part of her new Primary class. The subsequent, devastating, results were beyond her wildest imagination! Could a simple Bible lesson and act of kindness be life-saving?
This story, initially, was difficult for me to connect with, but then it became very intense and incredulous and I truly enjoyed reading it. The suspense built and kept the readers’ interest. The characters were well-developed and felt real, the scenes were easily visualized, and the Title became very fitting by the end of the story… However, the cover was blasé, although fitting, which would not attract “the browser”.
*This book was gifted me but I am in no way obligated to post anything but an honest review, of which I have done.
I offer a Four Stars rating for this book.
ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
Lynne Larson is an award-winning teacher and writer with a special interest in western history, particularly as It relates to women. Several of her stories, essays, and articles have appeared in regional magazines, as well as in Latter-day Saint publications.
Her novel, In the Shadow of an Angel, grew from her great regard for the pioneers who put the statue of Moroni on the temple long ago, never realizing the changes that would come as the golden figure watched over their Zion for the next one hundred years. Nor could those early builders fully imagine the generations coming after them, for whom the statue would be a beacon and a guide, millions of people, each with a life to live and a story to tell, and all connected by the angel on the spire.
