Historical Fiction Fascinates
Miriam-Victim of Babylon by Sam Antone is historical fiction based on a story told in the Book of Mormon. It is a tale of love kept strong under torture and threat of death. It highlights a family's faith and courage. The biblical tone with rich descriptions kept me interested in this period piece.
Mr. Antone's setting and characters reflect the ancient time before Christ. The dialogue brings you into another time period. This book offers a 'good read' on a plane, train, or bus. It stimulates discussion for any book group.
Don't let the religious basis of this book stop you from reading it. It is a tale woven to teach and entertain.
