It is 1864 and the nation is torn apart by civil war when Heather Worth discovers she is with child. With her husband at the front and nowhere else to turn, she seeks refuge in the Shaker village of Harmony Hill. Amid the tumult of the times, Heather yearns for the peace she sees in this strange community. But can this longing really be fulfilled amid these people with their peculiar beliefs about family?
As Christmas approaches, the joy of new life and the love that is born of forgiveness may hold the answer.
Interesting book, you don't quite know how it is going to end until very close to the end, which is good as it keeps you guessing. It's an easy book to read; one which I read in an afternoon and evening. I am not a fan of Shaker stories though, I guess I need to read more about them to understand.
One of the things though was that you admired the strength and courage of Heather and her belief in her husband. It also showed what a great heart she had in forgiving her father.
Stars out of 5 : 4 good book to read in a couple of afternoon, but it is a hardback book and costs $15.99 USD so a good one to borrow from your local library.
