Secrets of the King's Duagher: A Book of Mormon Romance by Renae Weight Mackley -- Book Tour Review + Giveaway
About the Book
It was a relationship designed to unite not two young people in love, but two powerful kingdoms. And for Princess Karlinah, eldest daughter of King Lamoni, her marriage to the haughty heir to the throne of Jersusalem has led to a life of fear and abuse. There seems to be no escape—until her husband is murdered and Karlinah is unexpectedly free to return to her father’s kingdom. She can begin again—but no one can ever know of the part she played in the prince’s demise . . . Karlinah’s relief is short-lived, for upon her return to the land of Ishmael, she is once again swept into her father’s plans for a politically powerful marriage. Then the arrival of a young missionary in her father’s court changes everything: her family is converted to a new religion, and Karlinah is free to choose her path. Yet she is not so easily convinced by the words of Ammon—especially when repentance means confessing her crime. But as her faith grows and a young stone artisan captures her heart, Karlinah realizes that she must face the consequences of her past in order to move forward with her future.
About the Author
Renae Weight Mackley doesn’t claim to have experienced that lightning-bolt moment of belief in the gospel; she’s always been a line-upon-line believer. So the chance to vicariously live the life of a spunky Lamanite princess who has a hard time being convinced of anything is tempting—as long as she eventually reaches that inspiring, happy ending. Though no one has called her a princess since childhood, some know her as wife; mother; grandmother; former substitute teacher; and creator of music, fiber arts, good food, and the written word.
Author Renae Weight Mackley has done a fantastic job bringing one of my favorite Book of Mormon stories to life in her novel, Secrets of the King’s Daughter. From page one I was hooked by this beautiful, rich, beloved, and enchanting story of Princess Karlinah. This novel portrays Karlinah’s struggles, discovering her faith, repentance, baptism and falling in love. This action packed story is filled with twists and turns, as well as inspiration. I would recommend this novel to readers that enjoy novels based on characters from the scriptures.
