No Dean Hughes fan will be disappointed with his return to historical church fiction. In the mold of "Children of the Promise" and "Hearts of he Children", he gives life to two valiant saints from the 1840's Midlands in England and their ancestors five generations later in contemporary Nauvoo. In Hughes' way, the story moves forward without rest, lingering only when called for by the scene and is filled with well-researched detail that places us there physically. The characterizations are richly human, the stories filled with real life and it's hardships - but threaded together with experiences of tried-faith, inspiration and the hand of Deity. May the following volumes hurry their way to the publisher!

I loved this book! I loved how two families from two different time periods were woven in to one story. My family had actually taken a road trip to my husband's family reunion to Louisianna and then on to Nauvoo for the pageant and three days of touring the sites there. It was as we were driving home through Kansas when I got the part where a young couple arrives in modern-day Nauvoo. It was so sareal as they drove through the city because I was just there and I could see exactly where they were going in my mind. It made it so real! Loved the book even if it did leave me hanging:) Can't wait for the next one!!!!

This series was "highly" recommended to me - but I found the first book to be somewhat nauseating. What bothered me the most was the stereo-typical way Mr. Hughes evidently thinks women think. The first heroine was hard enough to take, but when the second heroine began losing her spontaneity and becoming like the first, I had to put the book away. I am so not a feminist - but I'd like to see a lot more spunk and personality in the characters I read about.

This is a good book with good story line. It is a book that you can
put down and pick up again. Not like most I read that you neead to
get to the end of the book. Casual reading would discripe it.
If you are not sure about it on your kindle I suggest reading the sample.

Volume 1 of Come to Zion, The Wind and the Waves is a wonderful book and is about a pioneer couple, Will and Liz Lewis starting in the 1840's. It also involves a modern day couple, Jeff and Abby Lewis. It is about the hardships in the pioneer days and what Will and Liz had to endure in the pioneer days. If you like history then you will enjoy this book

enjoyed, thought it was a little political for the time period. i mean, did they worry about a socialist government taking over England in the early to mid nineteenth century? i thought the author showed his leanings here, which distracted from the story. Otherwise, it was fun and informative. We loved the authors series of the family during the 2nd world war. It is my parents time period,(or at least when they were children) and was very welcome when my dad was so sick and they were so house bound, these books meant a lot.

Dean Hughes' work is always very readable. In this case I enjoyed the story of Liz and Will in England a great deal, even the conversion story. But the trip on the ship, although probably accurate, was as tiresome to read as the actual event for those who lived it. I also couldn't help thinking I read these things many times in church history and The Work and the glory. Knowing what's in store for these people reduces the tension I like to feel.

I do like the structure of the story--the juxtaposition of the pioneer couple and the contemporary Jeff and Abby. It was interesting to see the differences, but also the similarities. I've given it 4 stars because I like the writing style but in all honesty I probably won't read the series. But that says more about me than it does the book.
