Keturah is a strong willed girl who believes she has a heart of a warrior. So when her brothers and closest friend Zeke begin training for war under the leadership of Helaman, she begins training of her own. Hiding away in the forest near the falls, she strengthens herself with a sword, an axe, the cimeter and a bow. The village would say that a young girl of the age to be betrothed has no place wielding a sword. Her mother would have her doing women's work and staying out of harm's way. But Keturah is determined she will soone be the only daughter of Halemana to step onto the field as a stripling warrior. She will defend her country and her kin with no regard to what others may say.
Misty Moncur takes a story from the pages of scripture and infuses it with vivid color. This is a story set in the Ancient Americas but made for our time. A tale of faith and courage, of following your heart against all odds. Youth and adults will feel torn as Keturah between Zeke,her childhood friend whom she loves and Gideon, warrior of little words who would challenge Zeke's hand. I was impressed with the way the author made the story of the armies of Helaman and made it come to life. I am holding out for a book two to answer the unresolved pieces of plot behind Keturah's heritage, her choice in love, and the action in battle. Daughter of Helaman is a book I would recommend to all readers who enjoy ancient American history, adventure and Book Of Mormon heroes with true courage.
