The Star Prophesy by Joan Sowards

Today in the blog tour for Meg's Melody, stop by Taffy's review blog and leave a comment (or go to this post for a list of other blogs you can leave comments at), or become a follower of my blog for a chance to win a copy of Meg's Melody.

Now...
I so excited to be a part of the blog tour of The Star Prophecy by Joan Sowards this week! I really enjoyed this book. While reading this book, I kept thinking: I want to read this to my children! There is a lot of exctiting adventure as Enoch travels from Zarahemla to Jeruselem to see the baby Jesus. As an adult, I enjoyed thinking about the birth of the Savior from a different perspective and watching Enoch grow and hold fast in his faith. I think that my kids would be completely drawn into the Nephite world and an adventure at sea. A recommended bedtime read!

*****
You are crazy. No Nephite has ever
returned.


Most people laugh when they hear of Enoch's dream of returning to
Jerusalem to find the infant Messiah. Even Enoch's future father-in-law
mocks him when he asks for a postponement of his long-awaited wedding to
his beloved Rebekah. A few take Enoch seriously - the shipbuilder Omnihah,
Enoch's teacher David, and the prophet Nephi.

Five years before, a Lamanite named Samuel had stood on the wall of
Zarahemla and prophesied that "five years more cometh" and the Christ
would be born in Jerusalem. Time is running out! Enoch knows he must set
sail across the great waters in search of his dream - to see the face of
the Messiah.

The Star Prophacy is a surprising
story of courage and love, faith and fortitude. Sail with Enoch and his
friends across the sea through hardship and adventure in search of the
Christ child.
