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 Latterday 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.
