“A Lost Faith Is Never Too Far Gone”
Serena is devastated when her lifelong friend, Aminadab, is banned from Zarahemla for abandoning his faith and persecuting the saints. To add to her despair, she loses the rare ruby her father entrusted to her and she feels all is lost.
Unbeknownst to her, Aminadab finds the ruby, and takes it as his only reminder of Serena. As an outcast, Aminadab and his company of dissenters seek refuge among the Lamanites, who happen to be the very people who killed his parents. Not only is his anxiety high for being surrounded by these bloodthirsty people, but he quickly discovers heâ€™s in the middle of a Gadianton plot to start a war between the Nephites and Lamanites.
Selling the ruby soon becomes the only option Aminadab has at escaping theÂ volatile life he finds himself in. However, this act might forever banish him from ever being in Serenaâ€™s graces again.
In D Vansenâ€™s Book of Mormon adventure, Aminadab must choose which side heâ€™s on in a reflective journey of self-discovery, while Serena must stay faithful and hold onto the hope that a lost faith is never too far gone.
D Vansen lives in Northern Utah with her family. After serving a LDS mission, she developed a love for the Book
of Mormon and its eternal truths. She claims that if you ever want the scriptures and its characters to come to life,
plot a novel from them. She loves all things artistic, unless it involves combining food ingredients. Thank heavens
she has children that will help with that specific talent.

What a treat this book has been for me. I truly enjoyed the tale and the characters in it. I believe this is an excellent piece for young adults as young as 10 years old and up. It is a great book to learn about choices, repentance, forgiveness. It will also help many to make better choices in their lives and stay closer to the faith of their fathers. It is excellent material without being preachy and is presented in a non-threatening way. You enjoy a clean read from the first page to the end.

The same day she loses her father’s precious stone, a treasure that was passed to her by him and the lostÂ off it that will bring great sadness to her family.
How can she keep the faith when all seems lost to her?
In this book you will find a great tale with some elements from the Book of Mormon and some elements from the author’s imagination. In all it works beautifully, but is not considered doctrine. It is an excellent work of art. I loved it.
