    1 thought on “The Zion Trail (Promised Valley, #1)”

    1. Marsha Ward has written another delightful historical book, this time based on one family's conversion to Mormonism, or Latter-Day Saints. Follow the journey of the Marshall family from the time they meet the missionaries to their adventures as they travel to Zion.

    2. Great Story of FaithLike the story of Elijah and his family, this story traveled at a steady pace as decisions made to accept a new faith found them at the center of persecution. Even when the results of choices left me second-guessing along with the character if a mistake had been made, like in real life I enjoyed reading how each character worked through their difficulties to continue towards their primary goals. The characters were described well and I felt I knew them, even as tragedy took s [...]

    3. I cannot even imagine the fortitude of the early Saints. Joining a religion that they felt a passion for only to be ostracized by friends and neighbors. Families being torn apart. Driven from homes and farms to travel across an entire country on foot or by wagon. Yet, through it all the Lord sends his blessings. Your heart will be touched with this tender telling of one young man who presses forward--no matter the cost.

    4. I enjoyed this account of a young man's conversion to the Church and journey west. He did find love and I wished it wasn't so close to the end so more time could have been spent on his relationship and marriage. I would recommend it.

    5. The Zion Trail, A Promised Valley Novel by Marsha Ward is an outstanding tale of the life of a young pioneer man. It will give you a clear vision of the struggles and the blessings he receives in his life.When Elijah offers a drink to two men while plowing his land, he doesn't realize how many things will change in his life. His family is composed by three siblings, himself, his mom and pop. All their lives change in matter of days as they embrace the Mormon religion. Friendly farmers by trade, [...]

    6. The Zion Trail tells the story of Elijah Marshal, beginning on the day two Mormon missionaries stop by his home. The book spans several years and follows Lije as he and his family embrace their new religion and then face subsequent persecution. He follows the Latter-day Saints as they move from Nauvoo outside of the US and into the Utah territory in search of freedom of religion. The story touches on the history of the time and the Mormon people, without going into too much detail. If you want m [...]

    7. I really enjoyed this story. My heart was tugged as I watched Elijah and his family suffer because of their faith, testimony, and beliefs. The way this book depicts the early trials which the Mormon people faced was very respectful and touching. Most of all, I connected with the main character, Elijah, and appreciated being able to experience his life. I liked how the author didn't just focus on tragedy, but the kindness shown to Elijah from strangers not of his faith was touching. I look forwar [...]

    8. I enjoyed the story of Elijah and his trip west. This book reads like a memoir, which gives it a ring of authenticity. I have ancestors who made the same trip, and it was like walking along beside them. The trials and setbacks suffered by the Mormon Pioneers is shown with sensitivity and accuracy. The history doesn't bog down the story with a lot of info dumps. Instead, the history comes along as the story unfolds.

    9. I enjoyed this story, for the most part. The author covered a great deal of information from the early days of the LDS church, highlighting one family's conversion and the struggles they encountered afterward. I loved the enduring message of never losing hope or never losing faith.
