"To be cheerful when others are in despair, to keep the faith when others falter, to be true even when we feel forsakenóall of these are deeply desired outcomes during the deliberate, divine tutorials which God gives to usóbecause He loves us. These learning experiences must not be misread as divine indifference. Instead, such tutorials are a part of the divine unfolding."

--Neal A. Maxwell, "Be of Good Cheer", Ensign, Nov 1982, 66

Come to Zion, Vol. 1: The Winds and the Waves
Dean Hughes

Will Lewis is stuck. the class system in England in the 1840s seems destined to keep him in his place as a poor tenant farmer who cannot improve his lot and will never be able to marry the woman he loves. But the "new religion" that is sweeping through congregations of the United Brethren, Will's church, may hold the key to the better life he longs for. As he listens to the preaching of Wilford Woodruff, he almost dares to hope for the Zion the young Apostle describes.

Will's struggles to believe and to face the rigors of immigrating to an unknown land are paralleled by the modern-day story of Jeff and Abby, a young married couple facing challenges of their own. When Jeff begins digging into his family history, he finds himself particularly drawn to "Grandpa Lewis," an ancestor whose life was more like his than he would have imagined.

The skillful interweaving of these two stories brings Church history to life while demonstrating how much we can learn from those who went before us. Anyone who has ever faced the winds and the waves, in some form, will love this novel.
