Author/Book Tour

When you are asked to review a book you know nothing of - you just never know what you are getting into - but I have been pleasantly surprised with Trisit Pinkston's Season of Sacrifice. This book is one that I have not been able to put down since I started it. It is wonderful history of the Mormon's as they travel across the U.S. to uncivilized Utah. The pioneers face struggles of all kinds - and woven throughout is the basis for what they are doing - their faith. Pinkston handled with care and honestly the whole issue of polygamy as well. I was pleasantly surprised with this great read - I want to read some of her others now.

Here is a bit of info on Pinkston - Tristi Pinkston is the author of two published LDS novels, Nothing to Regret and Strength to Endure, both set during World War II. She has been critically acclaimed for the realism of her novels, which uplift without being preachy. Tristi has been married to Matt Pinkston for twelve years, and together they have four children: Caryn, Ammon, Joseph, and Benjamin. She home-schools these children and considers it a joy to watch them learn and grow. Tristi enjoys reading, watching good movies, scrapbooking, and taking long naps. She writes reviews for and also maintains her own personal blog, in addition to owning and operating her own bath-and-beauty supply company. Tristi has been a member of LDStorymakers for over five years. She is a regular presenter at the LDStorymakers Writers Conferences, has presented at the League of Utah Writers monthly meeting as well as the Spring Workshop, was featured at the ANWA yearly conference, and gives presentations regularly to promote the cause of literacy. She also hides her laundry in strange places and enjoys trying recipes no one will eat.
I have enjoyed being a part of Pinkston's book tour in the blogworld - her books are intriguing, and I will certainly "sell" them to patrons at our library!
