I really enjoyed this book. It was hard to put it down. It had all the necessary elements for an enjoyable read. I liked the idea of a whole family involvement. In times when there are so many fractured families, it is exciting to read a book where there is a family working together showing love and concern for each other. I liked the idea of learning about ancestors and the influence they have in making us who we are.

Gerald Lund has done it again. He is masterful no matter what he is writing. I have read many of his other books and get involved with the characters almost immediately because he can bring them to life through his words.
In this case a young girl (Danni) is given an heirloom by her grandfather on her thirteenth birthday. She knows it is special to him and to her ancestors, but does not know why. Her grandfather doesn't fully explain, but says to keep it with her and to protect it. On her sixteenth birthday she soon will find out why this gift is called "the guardian". Her family and her boyfriend's family are in danger and it is up to her with the aid of her boyfriend (Rick) and brother (Cody) to save her parents, grandfather and protect Rick's family. Through the course of events she discovers the power of the guardian. The story takes place mostly in southern central Utah. An area Lund knows well from other books he has written.
I found that there were many parallels and lessons to be learned by this story. It emphasized the importance of families, friends and the help of others. To know of your heritage and how ancestors are a part of you, and knowing them can help you to discover yourself. The guardian was like a metaphor for spiritual gifts.
This is a great coming of age book that I would recommend for teens, but would be enjoyed by all ages. I intend to give a copy to my granddaughter for Christmas.

This is a great book, easy to read yet very engrossing! I couldn't put it down. I recommend this book to any one young and old. The main character, Danni, is a typical teenager yet seems to come into her own when her family is facing grave danger. It is fascinating to see how she can work through different difficulties and learn more about herself and her heritage.

This is a great family book with all of the wonderful elements of action, adventure, mystery, and a little romance. Since the main character is in her teens, I would think that teens and young adults would enjoy this but it will also make a great read allowed for families. Great job Brother Lund.

I loved this book. Be prepared for an exciting read! Once you're introduced to Danni, you won't be able to put this book down. She is an "enchanting" young teenager and her adventure is loads of fun and surprisingly inspiring. Maybe Danni will have further adventures. I hope so, I started to miss her as soon as I turned the last page. Enjoy!

Guardian by Gerald N. Lund
5 STARS

This is a great story. It is full of enchantment,drama,action and humor too.
The main characters are three children with two of them teenagers. Danni McAllister
at age 13 gets a birthday present from her grandfather that is an old purse or bag that has been passed down in thier family for over a 100 years. She tries to hide her disappointment in it.
Her best friend for years has been Ricky Ramirez he has to help babysit his sisters and even works with Dani's father part time. He is a year older than Dani.
Cody is 10 and Dani's sister. He is smart with numbers.
Dani & Cody's family is being held hostage for 20 million dollars that thier family is selling a mine for that price. The kidnappers know a lot about thier family and what they are up to.
Dani is a tomboy,stubborn. She gets a rifle for her 13 birthday too and her grandfather,father,Ricky and her go camping and Ricky and her get taught how to fire the rifle.
Dani gets teased about the pouch that is called the Guardian because her mother makes her take it to school in her middle school everyday. One day some interesting things happen to Dani and she learns a little more about what the pouch can do. She learns some important lessons along the way.
When thier family is kidnapped Dani and Cody get away and caught again and escape. Every time it looks bleak for them something happens to help them out of trouble. But when things are looking like they will workout something goes wrong so you are on your edge of the seat waiting for what happens next.
It is a well told story and I hated to have to put it down. The characters are exciting with flaws and good points. This is a book that a lot of different ages can read and enjoy it. Or even read it together.
