A fictional portrayal of events in the life of Corianton, one of the sons of Alma the Younger. The next morning, Corianton encounters his brother Shiblon, who exhorts him to flee and tells him that he was reported in the company of the harlot Isabel the night before. Corianton protests his innocence, and does not believe his brother, who is shortly thereafter arrested by Seantum for slandering his family. Seeing his father and Ammon pursued by a mob and mocked for his own actions, Corianton is ashamed and confronts Joan, now revealed as the harlot Isabel. She convinces him to come with her to the land of Siron. In the aftermath of his departure, the mission to the Zoramites departs the city, soon to be followed by the believers among the Zoramites, who are cast out by their brethren. In the land of Siron, Isabel reveals her true colors to Corianton and orders him beaten and taken in bonds to the land of Jershon. There, he is stoned by the refugees of Antionum, until rescued by his brother Shiblon. As he recovers, he is taught the great fundamental truths of the gospel by his father Alma the Younger, and is finally humbled.
