Diane Noble's The Veil is one of those books that I couldn't put down. It was the first book I have read from her and picked it up because of the tie in to the Mormon faith. It was an area that I had not read much about and was interested in. I enjoyed learning the history of the Mormon's through a factual yet Christian viewpoint. I learned so much about there religion and still can not believe the views they had.

The Veil takes place during the years of Brigham Young and there early days in the Utah Territory. They were known as the Saints back then. All the Saints claim to want to be able to practice there beliefs without persecution. Though they are very hypocritical in the fact that they persecute those who believe against them.

The fictional story of the book deals with Hannah McClary and the many she loves, Lucas Knight. Lucas is part of the Dannites, a group trained to kill on behalf of the Saints. Both Hannah and Lucas have questioned the beliefs the leaders have placed on them and desire to know the truth and the world outside of the saints.

When a group of pioneers cross through the Utah Territory, at a place called Mountain Meadows they are massacred by the Saints. Hannah and Lucas find themselves in a very difficult battle. Will this tragedy finally set them free?

This book is a great book for anyone who loves history, wants to learn more about the early Mormon church and is looking for a page-turner.
