The Refuge by Ann H. Gabhart

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.
