Seeking refuge from the cholera epidemic, Darcie and Walter find themselves in a Shaker village. This is an interesting group which feels marriage and marital relations is a sin. Walter dies and leaves Darcie only as she finds herself expecting her late husband's child. Something frowned upon by this culture.
A very well studied and researched book, Ann Gabhart is a very enthralling author. It is so interesting to read about groups that you otherwise would never know about. I really enjoyed this book and hope to read many more from this author. Excellent read!
I received an ebook copy from NetGalley. All thoughts are my own.
