LDS Women's Book Review was privileged to have K.C. (Kim) Grant, author of Abish: Daughter of God, join us this past weekend to record Episode 40 of the LDSWBR podcast. We had a wonderful discussion and the podcast will be available soon at www.ldswomensbookreview.com. In the meantime, I'd like to share a brief review of K.C. Grant's first novel, Abish: Daughter of God.

Not much is known about Abish, one of only a few women mentioned by name in the Book of Mormon (see Alma 19). K.C. Grant has taken what is mentioned, coupled with months of research, and written a detailed story of what Abish's life experiences may have entailed.

As I've read the Book of Mormon through the years, I have often wondered what every day life was like for the Nephites and Lamanites in the Promised Land, especially for the women and mothers. Reading Book of Mormon historical fiction like Abish offers a glimpse into what life was possibly like for them and I find those possibilities fascinating.

During the podcast, K.C. Grant shared with us how she first became interested in telling Abish's story, her time spent studying in Mexico, the months she spent researching, as well as what she is working on for the future. We had a great time and want to thank K.C. (Kim) for joining us on the podcast.

Learn more about Abish: Daughter of God on K.C. Grant's website: www.kcgrant.com as well as her blog: Writer's Corner by KC Grant.

Watch for Episode 40, coming soon!
