In the Shadow of an Angel

It's spring of 1892 and young Alice Chapman is on the Temple Block when the statue of the Angel Moroni is placed upon the Salt Lake City Temple. She's thrilled to be able to see the great event, but her heart is heavy because he beloved sister Belle had run away to marry a young man that her parents didn't approve of and they have been unable to find her. Her father appears to have given up all hope of ever finding Belle, but Alice refuses to give up, even going so far as to dress up as a boy and hop a train heading north searching for her brother in law. This is the story not only of Alice's search for her beloved sister, but Alice's daughter, granddaughter and great-granddaughter as well. All these young women grew up in the Salt Lake Valley and all were touched by the Angel Moroni on the Temple. 

This book was really good! I enjoyed being able to see what happened to all of these women through the eyes of their posterity. I liked how the Angel Moroni figures into each of their stories, and how they are all able to build on previous generations testimonies not only of the Temple and Moroni, but of the gospel of Jesus Christ as well. Don't miss this fun book!

I was able to borrow this book from my local library.
