Ariana: A Gift Most Precious
Second novel in the Ariana series
Broken promises, broken dreams, broken hearts . . . Ariana Perrault has seen
them all in her short lifetime, but now they seem only distant memories.
Having climbed the long pathway from sinner to Latter-day Saint, she has
felt the arms of a loving Heavenly Father around her, guiding her to a wonderful
life with Jean-Marc and their three beautiful children. Her best friend,
Paulette, has also repented, embraced the gospel, and started an eternal
family of her own. But who could know that one of life's deepest, darkest
tragedies is just around the corner?
In this powerful sequel to
Ariana: The Making of a
Queen, these two women and their families come face to face with
the life-and-death consequences of past choices. Will their testimonies give
them strength enough to withstand the darkest hours of their lives? The answer,
born of both adversity and joy, is A Gift Most Precious.

people like best about the book is the interaction between Ariana, her husband,
and her children. Women constantly tell me their husbands act just like Ariana's!

I had shed the night before and again today. Around me, people moved with
