The Kingdom Series:
Mormons are cutting a Kingdom out of the western United States. The series is both historical and contemporary fiction. They follow Anna who converted and emigrated from Europe. Her first husband is murdered aboard ship because he has come to question the secrets and lies that were told to them by the missionaries who converted them. Her second husband is forced to join a murderous militia who kills or maims Mormons who do not obey the priesthood. He is also forced to help massacre over a hundred unarmed men, women and children passing through Utah.
