A Lively Stone

It is October of 1838 as a volunteer cavalry of Mormons gather in the woods. Ill-prepared for battle, they organize as best they can to face hundreds of mobbers who, with the governor’s support, have besieged the people of DeWitt, Missouri. With supplies running low, members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints are starving. But there is a bright light amid the darkness of despair: the cavalry’s distinguished leader, Seymour Brunson. As Major Brunson leads his nervous soldiers into battle with the mobbers, he reassures them that God is on their side. Buoyed by courage and determination, the soldiers defend the DeWitt Saints—until they are all betrayed. But all is not lost as Brunson evades his captors and bravely helps the Saints find safety in Illinois. A Lively Stone is an engaging story of action, heroism, and love based on true events that chronicle the life of an important leader of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints
