Escape From Zarahemla

This is the sequel to Passage To Zarahemla, a while ago, just out of curiosity I looked up just how long ago, the original was written in 2003. Kerra and her brother Brock are taking missionary discussions and trying to determine how they feel about the Church. Their home life isn't normal and hasn't been for a long time due to their parent's divorce and their father disappearing for several years. Their father has been back just 6 months, but he hasn't been the dad that they knew before he left, and he's not giving them any explanation as to why. Kerra and Brock are having a missionary discussion when he bursts into their small St. George apartment and tells them that they need to go to their aunt and uncle's home. When they arrive they are told that there is a Nephite hidden in the hollow, where the time rift from before is. This Nephite recognizes their father and gives him a message about the destruction of his family, Kerra and Brock are perplexed, because they had no idea that their father had been to the first century A.D. and now has a second family that he was forced to leave there when he traveled home. This is just as well for Kerra, because her sweetheart, Kiddoni, was also from that era and she was forced to watch him fade into the time rift just 6 months ago. I did enjoy this book, it's full of action and adventure, not to mention a really sweet love story. You really need to have read the first one though, and for me it would have helped to have read it more recently than 8 or 9 years ago. I did love how this series and Chris Heimerdinger's popular Tennis Shoes series blended together. I hope that the upcoming Tennis Shoes adventure continues with Brock and Kerra's story so that we are able to determine what happens to them.
