"Alma the Younger" by H.B. Moore

H. B. Moore is the author of eight books, seven historical fiction, and one non-fiction. Her latest offering is Alma the Younger. Her three previous fiction books were all finalists for the Whitney Award and two of the three were winners in the historical category. I've heard readers say this is her best one yet.

Alma the Younger, son of the aging high priest, once was taught by the wisdom of the prophets.
Now, ensnared by the wiles of strong drink and harlots, he’s a
bitter dissenter determined to overthrow the church and lead the people into new “freedoms.”

But en route to one of his malicious missions with his royal henchmen, Alma is halted by an unexpected opponent: an angel of the Lord, a messenger of the very God he has sought to defame.

What unfolds is a story of miraculous redemption, a story building on the poignant Book of Mormon account to show how even the vilest of sinners can be transformed by the Savior’s amazing grace.
