The Forgotten Warrior Virtual Book Tour

Today I have the privilege of hosting a virtual book tour stop for Kathi Oram Peterson's novel The Forgotten Warrior.

Forgiveness has never been an attribute of sixteen-year-old Sydney Morgan's. Loyal and loving to her mother and sister, a crisis forces her to find her absent father, which in turn begins a chain of events leading her to the last place and time she would have ever expected.

The Forgotten Warrior follows Syd as she is transported back to Book of Mormon times by touching a mysterious clear stone. She meets Chief Captain Helaman; nursemaid, Mariah; and the stripling warriors. They believe Syd to be a boy, and worse yet, Helaman's second-in-command, Tarik, thinks Syd is a Lamanite spy and threatens to kill her.

Come follow Sydney as she desperately tries to find her way back home, fights to gain Helaman's respect, and despite herself, falls in love with Tarik.

I'm glad I was asked to be a part of this book tour. I enjoyed reading The Forgotten Warrior. The book was well written and a pleasure to read, and should appeal to both young men and women.

To go along with the book, Kathi is holding a "Latter-day Stripling Warrior Contest." You can nominate a girl or boy between the ages of 8 and 18 to be a Latter-day Stripling Warrior simply by writing down a kind deed or deeds that the youth has done. Entry forms are available on Kathi's website. Click on "Events," then print out the entry form and mail it to Kathi.

Every entrant gets a certificate showing that they are a Latter-day Stripling Warrior, and the grand prize is a $50 gift certificate from
