9781609070588: Come to Zion: The Winds and the Waves

Past meets present in this wonderful new historical novel from bestselling author Dean Hughes. Wilford Woodruff's preaching to congregations of the United Brethren in England has a profound effect on Will Lewis, but does this "new religion" really hold the key to the better life he longs for? Does he dare risk his precarious, hard-won success in order to embrace it? Can it give him the love of his life, or will it snatch her away? Will's struggles to believe, to win his true love, and to face the rigors of immigrating to an unknown land are paralleled by the modern-day story of Jeff and Abby, a young married couple facing challenges of their own. The skillful interweaving of these two stories brings Church history to life while demonstrating how much we can learn from those who went before us. Anyone who has ever battled the winds and the waves, in some form, will love this novel. Dean Hughes has published more than ninety books for readers of all ages, including the popular Children of Promise series. He holds a bachelor's degree from Weber State College and an MA and PhD from the University of Washington. He has taught English at Central Missouri State University and at BYU. Dean and his wife recently served a mission to Nauvoo, Illinois.
