From the Publisher

When well-laid plans go awry, can she still make her dreams come true?

Charlotte Vance is a young woman who knows what she wants. But when the man she planned to marry joins the Shakers—a religious group that does not allow marriage—she is left dumbfounded. And when her father brings home a new wife who is young enough to be Charlotte’s sister, it is more than she can bear. With the country—and her own household—on the brink of civil war, this pampered gentlewoman hatches a plan to avoid her new stepmother and win back her man by joining the Shaker community at Harmony Hill. Little does she know that this decision will lead her down a road of unforeseen consequences.

MY THOUGHTS

THE SEEKER by Ann H. Gabhart is an Inspirational historical fiction set in 1861 Mercer County, Kentucky. It is an inspiring story of love and sacrifice. It is well written with details and depth. It has faith, devotion, courage, sacrifice, betrayal, forgiveness, grace, freedom, slavery, and love that blooms despite the circumstances.The characters are selfish, strong, and will draw you into the story and keep you wanting more. It is a fast paced, page turning story. The heroine, Charlotte, is a true Southern Belle thrust into the world of the Shakers for her safety and seclusion. The hero, Adam, does illustrations for a newspaper, he is brought into Charlotte’s life by her new stepmother. He and Charlotte will become close through their trials and tribulation. This is a wonderful love story even through the ravages of  war in 1860 Kentucky, it weaves forgiveness, freedom,love, the different worlds between the simple Shaker world and the world of the Southern belle. I would highly recommend this story for it is truly in inspiring story, gives some insight into the Shaker world, and shows how love can overcome the atrocities around us. This book was received for review and details can be found at Revell.
