Overview

Set in 1893, Mt. Carmel schoolmarm, Sarieh Lee, learns on the night of her sealing to become a plural wife, that she was adopted as a body, with no explanation from her Mormon father, Wilber Lee, as to who her real parents might have been. She finds the life she knew falling apart when she is forced to flee the State of Deseret. She falls in love with a federal mine inspector, only to face life's challenges of survival on her own. Tracked by a federal marshal and threatened by the man who killed her birth parents, Sarieh finds she hasn't hidden deep enough in the isolated canyons of the Huachaca Mountains in southern Arizona that trouble doesn't find her. "Leaving Deseret" is the first in a series of romance/suspense novels entitled, "Army of Angels," that traces the Mormon's Avenging Angels (Danites) through the bloodline of Wilber Lee's family.
Rich in Mormon history, "Leaving Deseret" is full of mystery and mayhem and love and tragedy.

Editorial Reviews

Amelia Sheldon, Editor
Your manuscript is one of the best I have read in the seven years I have been freelance editing. What a pleasure! One of the strong assets you have is a talent for pacing. From the first chapter to the last, you kept me hooked and turning pages late into the night when I should have been sleeping. The peek into the Mormon life for a woman in the late 1800s, I found fascinating. You provide a look at that world that is complex and filled with shades of gray, which I really appreciated.

    Excellent Debut Novel

    Rich in mormon history that many people (including mormons) may not know about. Mary Estes has a unique voice and delightful writing style. Great character development and plot made it difficult to put down. I'm eagerly awaiting any new novels that Mary Estes may be writing for her Army of Angels series!!
