What  a fascinating read!

Unlike the conversions of the queen and the king, which take place before our eyes in the course of Alma 19, Abish’s conversion is already past when she comes into the story. The effect is interesting. While we are left to study only the post-conversion confessions of the queen and king—knowing little or nothing about what they saw in vision—all that we can study in the case of Abish is the report of her vision.

Unfortunately, though, Abish’s conversion story is told in the briefest of brief terms. Nonetheless, a good deal can be read into those brief terms. To work, then!
