In the City of Nephi, ruled by a drunken king, and lorded over by wicked high priests, who delight in lasciviousness, a young woman stands firm for all she knows is true. Zephenia vows she will not succumb to the temptations around her, or to the handsome high priest with his arrogant ways and lustful desires. After the martyrdom of Abinadi, the prophet, she will not abandon her belief in his teachings, nor deny her faith, even at the peril of her life.

Follow this remarkable young woman in her struggles to remain righteous as she confronts a multitude of trials--a proposition of marriage from a wealthy, but lustful landlord, terror at the hands of his evil henchmen, and the lewd advances of an enticing puppet master to King Noah. Join her as she rescues a Lamanite prince and his sister, which threatens the life of another believer, the one she might find happiness with.

  4. This looks amazing Betsy! The ambiance of the background for your blog fits so well. One question about the blurb; "Follow her righteousness"? Sounds prideful, and not like the lovely character you have painted of Zephenia. Threw me off a bit. Love the rest of it though!

    Walter Rane has a special place in my heart. During a time of soul searching, one of my sons saw his creation picture and that is all he wanted for Christmas. It was an amazing thing.

  8. You might try using a more contrasting font in places. Some of the text is hard to see.
