Joan Sowards and the Star Prophecy

The adventure begins with the blog tour
The Star
by Joan

I'm privileged enough to be a part of Joan Sowards blog tour and read her book The Star Prophecy. This being the case, my usual Work In Progress Wednesday will be a WIP Thursday this week. :)

I really enjoyed the story. It did not go where I expected it to and I like stories that do that. The characters are wonderful and I found myself pulled into their adventure anxious to find what would happen next. It got me thinking about the possibilities. I would highly recommend this book for anyone no matter what their age. Take a look at the book giveaway and where Joan will be next!

We will be giving
THREE copies of
The Star

You are crazy. No Nephite has ever

Most people laugh when they hear of Enoch's dream of returning to
Jerusalem to find the infant Messiah. Even Enoch's future father-in-law
mocks him when he asks for a postponement of his long-awaited wedding to
his beloved Rebekah. A few take Enoch seriously - the shipbuilder Omnihah,
Enoch's teacher David, and the prophet Nephi.

Five years before, a Lamanite named Samuel had stood on the wall of
Zarahemla and prophesied that "five years more cometh" and the Christ
would be born in Jerusalem. Time is running out! Enoch knows he must set
sail across the great waters in search of his dream - to see the face of
the Messiah.

The Star Prophacy is a
story of courage and love, faith and fortitude. Sail with Enoch and his
friends across the sea through hardship and adventure in search of the
Christ child.
