Land of Inheritance by H.B. Moore

This is the fourth and final book in the "Out of Jerusalem" series by H.B. Moore. It continues on with the story of Lehi and his family in the promised land. Even though they have found a land of plenty, the family is still divided over religious issues. After Lehi dies, Laman and Lemuel try to take over the leadership of the family, even though Lehi had instructed them to follow their younger brother, Nephi. After the family groups split, those who follow Nephi leave the settlement to forge their way to a new home. They feel they have finally found safety and peace. Of course, Laman and his followers have different ideas.

It's interesting to read another view of what may have happened once Lehi and his family landed in the promised land. I could tell there had been lots of research into the area and the type of food and plants they may have eaten and used for medicine. I also liked how the author brought in another tribe so Nephi's family wasn't just interacting among themselves. This story followed true to scripture and added new dimension to the account from the Book of Mormon. I enjoyed the read and am looking forward to more from this author.
