Book Thoughts by Rachelle
I love reading a good book that keeps me thinking about the characters long after the book is shut. Daughters of Jared by H.B. Moore (AKA Heather B. Moore) is masterfully written. She pulled me into the pages of this ancient story and brought the scriptures to life.
Daughters of Jared is based on a story from The Book of Mormon, so it is historical fiction for members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. I would like to voice my opinion that any fan of historical fiction regardless of their faith will enjoy this book. Moore is an incredible writer with a gift of weaving compelling plot lines together with strong-voiced characters. Naiva, one of the daughters of Jared tells this story through her own first-person viewpoint and it’s excellent!
Here’s more about the book:
From the ancient Book of Ether comes a haunting story of two royal sisters. The elder sister, Ash, will do anything to bring her father, King Jared II, back to the throne. The younger sister, Naiva, only wants to save her family from destruction. Greed and the quest for power blend together in H.B. Moore’s volatile new novel. The bond of sisterhood becomes precariously fragile when one man named Akish falls in love with the younger sister, Naiva, but he chooses to marry the elder sister. The sisters’ hearts are divided when Ash becomes queen, seduced by the promise of power and wealth. Naiva watches her world crumble away. She sees only one way out, but it will require forsaking all that she holds dear.
