BYU Magazine Review

In June I was scrambling to get an ARC for Richard Cracroft, author of the Book Nook column in BYU Magazine.

Today I saw the results. You can click on this link to read the full Book Nook column in its on-line formate, or read Cracroft's review below.

"In Land of Inheritance (Covenant; 336 pp.; $19.95), the fourth and final volume in her Out of Jerusalem series, Heather Brown Moore (BS ’94) recasts events from 1 Ne. 18:24 through Jacob 1:4, extrapolating from the bare-bones scriptural account an imaginative tale of New World exploration and settlement. Drawing on the rich and growing body of scholarship about ancient life in Mesoamerica (which she glosses in interesting chapter notes), Moore folds into the novel a wealth of anthropological detail about the New World, including details about existing indigenous populations at the time of the Lehite migration.While staying true to the Book of Mormon text and spirit, Moore has crafted a faith-enhancing story that revisits and vivifies Book of Mormon times and places."

LAst night I finished Chapter 19 in "Of Goodly Parents".

I'm thouroughly enjoying it Heather! I agree with Candace- your books should be on the "MUST READ" list.

I am thrilled to buy your other novels and continue on in your spectacular series. Having them in our library will be neat for my children. :)
