Publisher's summary

In the spring of 1834, Howard Egan, tired of working as a sailor, chooses to start a new life in Salem, Massachusetts.

Howard takes a job in a rope factory and starts to become a prosperous businessman. He also intends to marry a good woman. When he meets Tamson Parshley for the first time, Howard believes he has found that good woman. He just didn't expect her to be so beautiful - or so harsh.

Howard soon finds himself entangled in a life or death struggle involving a Mormon missionary named Erastus Snow and a powerful anti-Mormon businessman named Edward Clark, a man powerful enough to summon an anti-Mormon mob at the snap of his fingers.

Assigned as Erastus's bodyguard, Howard is duty-bound to be at the minister's side as he preaches his new religion, a religion and faith that complicates Howard's duty and his business dealings. But Howard and Tamson vow to not let the Mormon Church or Erastus come between them and any hope of love.

Howard soon finds himself struggling to fulfill his duty to Erastus, win Tamson's love, find an answer to his faith - and stay alive as anti-Mormon fervor threatens Salem's peace.

A Captivating Novel That Was Hard To Put Down!

Jeremy's writing is masterful! He does an excellent job of blending historical facts with a compelling and unique plot that kept me hooked throughout the whole book. Each major character is written to be multi-dimensional and relatable, making it easy for readers to become invested in their stories and fates.

Overall, I highly recommend "Zion's Call" to anyone who enjoys historical fiction or is looking for a captivating and well-written novel that seamlessly blends history and fiction.

I just finished reading the second book in the series and just had to come back and leave a review on book one since I loved the series in its entirety. If you haven't already, go buy book two.

Love the story! It is refreshing to hear testimony through this historical fiction in a clean and inspiring way.

The story is fun and engaging. I struggled with the narrators tone and inflection. I kept listening to see where the author would take the characters.
