Lydia Dawson is living on the Illinois frontier when she hears an unusual doctrine preached by a traveling minister from Ohio. The message of the gospel suggests answers to questions Lydia privately harbors. Lydia’s heart is stirred, but she is forbidden by her family to have anything to do with this newfound religion called Mormonism. In Independence, Missouri, Christian Kade is facing personal difficulties and mounting persecution because of his membership in the Church of Jesus Christ. His work on a Church-owned newspaper puts Christian in the center of a spiraling series of events which ultimately forces Christian, as well as the other Saints in Independence, into a dangerous confrontation with their enemies in Missouri. How these two courageous people surmount their trials and come to share a triumphant love is the compelling story in Volume 1 of this riveting series of historical novels, The Kade Family Saga: In Quest of Zion. Told with the artistry of a masterful storyteller against a historically accurate backdrop, the author skillfully blends historical and fictional characters into an exciting, fast-paced story. Lydia and Christian typify the faith and courage of the early Latter-day Saints. Their saga promises adventure, romance, and a spiritual journey you will never forget.

Good start to the series

This book and series is following very much the same flow as The Work and the Glory, and that's not a bad thing. The locales and individuals are different, in both fictional characters as well as genuine historical individuals. I found the story of the Missouri saints much more informative than TWATG especially in the social and societal dynamics and the depiction of how everyday as well as notable individuals could struggle and sometimes become disaffected or have their faith tested.
The narration was clear, consistent, and easy to listen to, with proper differentiation of characters and emotion.
I will be looking to listen to the next installment.
