The Gates of Eden

Welcome, dear reader. Thanks for dropping by! 

The Gates of Eden is inspired by the life of my great-great-grandmother, who converted to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints and journeyed from England to the Utah Territory in 1856. In that remote desert kingdom, she became the child bride of a Mormon polygamist almost four decades older. 

Please feel free to contact me with questions or requests. Thanks for your interest! Nadene

The Gates of Eden is a sweeping tale rich in historical detail … LeCheminant is a gifted storyteller, her prose elegant and finely crafted.

The author’s stunning imagery and command of Mormon history lend power to a gripping story. I was mesmerized.
