Publisher's Summary

Lydia Dawson is living on the Illinois frontier when she hears an unusual doctrine preached by a traveling minister from Ohio. The message of the gospel suggests answers to questions Lydia privately harbors. Lydia’s heart is stirred, but she is forbidden by her family to have anything to do with this new-found religion called Mormonism.

In Independence, Missouri, Christian Kade is facing personal difficulties and mounting persecution because of his membership in the Church of Jesus Christ. His work on a Church-owned newspaper puts Christian in the center of a spiraling series of events which ultimately forces Christian, as well as the other Saints in Independence, into a dangerous confrontation with their enemies in Missouri.

How these two courageous people surmount their trials and come to share a triumphant love is the compelling story of In Quest of Zion, volume one of this riveting series of historical novels, The Kade Family Saga. Told with the artistry of a masterful storyteller against a historically accurate backdrop, the author skillfully blends historical and fictional characters into an exciting, fast-paced story. Lydia and Christian typify the faith and courage of the early Latter-Day Saints. Their saga promises adventure, romance, and a spiritual journey you will never forget.

good LDS pioneer fiction

This was a good story about early members of the LDS church and their trials and persecutions. The narrator's voice was a little too monotone and breathy for my taste. But I plan to continue with book 2.

Good but slow

Very slow start and the narrator was hard to listen to, some what monotone. I couldn’t finish the book ( I tried three times), it never grabbed me and had a hard time connecting to the characters.

The Kade Family Saga Vol 1

Love the book, the building of characters. The time in history is portrayed realilasticly. The description of every day life and society's expectations of men and women brings understanding on how hard it was to accept and live the new teachings.
