    I loved the Ender series, and also Pathfinder, and quite some other books by Orson Scott Card. I bought this one, without even really looking at the blurb, and I was in for a surprise! This one is not SciFi. It's a historical novel about the founding of the Mormon church.  I thought long about how many stars this would get. I love his writing style. The story is interesting and entertaining, and I quickly got sucked into the time and setting of the book, so that would be a 5 star review, But at some times I could not understand the characters motivations and decisions. And that took the two stars away - because especially with a topic like this, I DO want to understand WHY people do join such a new religion. Why they go and leave their whole lives behind. At some points I did get it, but at others, the characters just "jump" from one opinion to another, without any discernible reason. The farther into the story it gets, the more of this happens.  So over all I ended up with 3 stars. It's a good read, that lets you look into a long passed time, but it's not convincing in some parts.
