Overview

Raquel has a secret. As the daughter of one of King Noah's priests, she enjoys a luxurious life and the admiration of powerful men. But her heart belongs to a commoner, a man with no earthly wealth but rich heavenly gifts. When King Noah demands that Raquel join his harem, she flees the only life she has known and marries her secret love. His name is Abinadi.

The couple finds abundant joy in their community of believers and in their firstborn son. But when the Lord calls Abinadi as His prophet, their faith is tested to the outermost limits. Abinadi's commitment to the Lord requires them both to give their all — even unto death. Yet if Alma, the newest priest in King Noah's court, chooses to overcome his troubled past and cleave unto the truth, their sacrifice may yield rich fruit.

With vivid detail and poignant emotion, this historical novel pulls readers into a fiery tale of love, courage, and faith that is difficult to put down and impossible to forget.

Abinadi is a fabulous first installment to the Book of Mormon series. I found the book to be quite fascinating. The characters are based on the Book of Mormon scripture. I enjoyed the author's vision of how these characters lived during their time. So rich in historical details. I greatly enjoyed this book. Great book! 5 plus stars.

Reading this book deepened my understanding, respect, and love for Abinadi, the Book of Mormon prophet. H.B. Moore has done an incredible thing in this fictionalized account of a true prophet who lived thousands of years ago--she brings him to life in a way that I'd never considered before. His sacrifice was acute and terrible and he did it because he wanted people to know about the Savior, Jesus Christ. Now, don't think that this is a preachy book. It is not at all that. In fact, people who know nothing of the Book of Mormon will love this book because Moore has written it in a way that transports you back in time to a people who lived like the ancient Mayans. She portrays the hardships, way of life, and challenges to seek and study religion and live beyond the servitude that so many people had to endure during the reigns of kings. I have read the entire series of Moore's books that develop from prophets and religious leaders in The Book of Mormon and The Holy Bible. Each is excellent in its own right and your time will be well spent in reading these novels.

Abinadi is an enjoyable read and hard to put down. The storyline is believable considering the religious historical context upon which the fictional story is based. H.B. Moore breathes life into her characters so the reader can relate to the characters' experiences even though the story is set in the years before Christ.
