Servant to a King by Sariah S. Wilson. Published by Covenant Communications, Inc.

When King Lamoni offers Ammon, his daughter Isabel as a wife, Isabel is insulted. But when the Nephite refuses her - she is livid! She sets out to prove that Ammon is a spy, for that is the only reason he can have for refusing her as a bride. But things change as she watches and interacts with Ammon, until the day that she must make a choice that will affect the rest of her life.

This book is set in Book of Mormon times. It's exciting to read a book that features characters from stories that we know and love. I enjoyed this account of Ammon and King Lamoni. It's a bit of a romance, but it also has some suspense and retells, from a completely different angle, one of our favorite Book of Mormon stories. I think this is a great book for anyone, of any age and I'm sure some of the Young Women in my ward, especially, would love to read it.
