Product Description

When unexpected circumstances leave Honor Penworthy destitute after the death of her grandfather, she is forced to leave her Maryland plantation-and the slaves she hoped to free-and seek refuge with a distant relative. With no marketable skills, her survival hinges on a marriage arranged through the Quaker community to local glass artisan Samuel Cathwell. Samuel is drawn to Honor, but he has been unwilling to open his heart to anyone since scarlet fever took his hearing as a child.A move west brings the promise of a fresh start, but nothing in Honor's genteel upbringing has prepared her for the rigors of frontier life with Samuel. Nevertheless, her tenacity and passion sweep her into important winds of change, and she becomes increasingly-though secretly-involved in the Underground Railroad. Samuel suspects Honor is hiding something, but will uncovering the truth confirm his worst fears or truly bring them together as man and wife?

Publisher's Description

When unexpected circumstances leave Honor Penworthy destitute after the death of her grandfather, she is forced to leave her Maryland plantation—and the slaves she hoped to free—and seek refuge with a distant relative. With no marketable skills, her survival hinges on a marriage arranged through the Quaker community to local glass artisan Samuel Cathwell. Samuel is drawn to Honor, but he has been unwilling to open his heart to anyone since scarlet fever took his hearing as a child.

A move west brings the promise of a fresh start, but nothing in Honor’s genteel upbringing has prepared her for the rigors of frontier life with Samuel. Nevertheless, her tenacity and passion sweep her into important winds of change, and she becomes increasingly—though secretly—involved in the Underground Railroad. Samuel suspects Honor is hiding something, but will uncovering the truth confirm his worst fears or truly bring them together as man and wife?

Set against the backdrop of dramatic and pivotal moments in American history, the Quaker Brides series chronicles the lives of three brave heroines, fighting to uphold their principles of freedom while navigating the terrain of faith, family, and the heart.

Editorial Reviews

4.5 star rating
Honor’s devotion to her Quaker beliefs makes her anything but weak as she fights against slavery and for the new family she has so quickly inherited. Strong in faith and determined to do what is right no matter the law, she is a spirited testament to the strength a wife can offer her husband. The unfolding of their sweet romance is a joy to read, and their shared triumph over difficult pasts and a dangerous present is well deserved.

Honor’s abolitionist stance leaves her disinherited from the home she loves and helpless to free her family’s slaves. Seeking sanctuary and work in the home of a distant relative, she instead finds a deaf man caring for his orphaned nephew as well as his dying mother. Samuel is determined to shut the world out as his inability to hear has made him an outcast. After he proposes to Honor, they journey to Ohio to make a new life for themselves. Her maid, Royale, and his nephew Eli—along with the dangers they face—make their marriage of convenience one of trust, hope and love.

    I absolutely love the detail of the main characters. There was a wonderful variety among them and each one was very rich and three dimensional. I felt like I knew them individually and wasnt just reading a story about them.

    The plight of women and slaves in 1819-20 is so well presented that my heart broke for them throughout this book. I also had never thought about how a deaf person would have been viewed and treated during this time period before reading this story. It was truly an eye-opening book for me.

    I knew before reading this story that the issue of abolition was a very touchy subject. It really came alive for me though more than just being a phrase I had heard. The anguish that many of the characters went through when discussing it was palpable!

    This review was written for Honor - eBook.
    Honor is the story of the title character, Honor, and her marriage to a deaf glassblower, Samuel. Very much a marriage of convenience story, it follows the couple as they move from Cincinnati to a smaller Ohio town in order to build a life for themselves. Because they are situated in an area that provides one of the quicker routes for escaped slaves to make it to Canada and freedom, Honor very soon finds herself in the thick of things, even though Ohio was considered a free state at the time of the novel.

    This novel had me intrigued for two reasons - namely that Honor is a Quaker, and I remember loving a childhood book about Quakers helping escaped slaves at great personal risk, and that the male lead is deaf. There aren't many main characters that are deaf, and I really appreciated reading Samuel's story. Although he was deaf, he still lead a successful business as a glassblower, which, in and of itself, it a really cool detail in the story - talk about a potentially dangerous profession!

    Although the writing style is not entirely to my liking, the storyline kept me invested in the story, and while Honor's character is admirable, I really found myself more interested in Samuel than I did Honor. Other than him, the other characters tended to blend together for me. I actually wanted more details about deafness during that time and a little more clarity on the signing that Samuel used to communicate. It seemed very easy for Honor to learn it, and I was a little skeptical that it wouldn't have taken longer to learn to communicate that way. There were a couple of times that the dialogue felt clunky, perhaps because of the way Samuel's speech had to be communicated.

    Despite some of the qualms I had, overall, I did enjoy this story. If you are looking for a light romance with some neat historical details, I recommend Honor. I have the second book and plan on reading it later this summer.

    This is the first book in the Quaker Brides series. I loved it. Honor and Samuel were perfect for each other. This had so much in this book It got into how someone handles becoming deaf and slavery. Everything was well written and I could not put this down. I received this from bookfun.org for a fair and honest opinion.

    by Lyn Cote

    Publ: Tyndale House c.2014

    Series: Quaker Brides

    Honor Penworthy is comfortable with her Quaker roots. Her grandfather who has raised her since her parents death is not comfortable with his. He has denounced his upbringing in favor of a more liberal faith that allows him to keep the slaves that make the functioning of his Maryland plantation possible. Now he is dying and Honor is his heir. She has promised her father that when she inherits the plantation she will free the slaves even though it means the end of the plantation as her family has known it for several generations. Unknown to her, her grandfather has changed his will to forestall this occurance. He is leaving the plantation to Honors cousin who is not even related to the old man. In the process he has left Honor almost penniless.

    After her grandfathers death Honor and her former maid Royale, whom she has freed, head to family in Pennsylvania in hopes of starting a new life there. When she arrives she finds that things are not as she had hoped. The household is made up of an elderly cousin, the cousins grown son who is a deaf mute, and the cousins orphaned grandson. Due to circumstances that Honor never even dreamed of, she finds herself married to Samuel, the deaf mute, and on her way to Ohio with the child Eli and Royale.

    Follow Honors story as she and Samuel learn to live together and love one another in the harsh wilderness of Ohio. Watch as Honor and Samuel come to realize what the life of freed and runaway slaves is like and strive to do their part to help. See what happens to Honors cousin Darah as a result of inheriting the family plantation. Become involved in Honors life as she grows into the strong woman God intended her to be.

    I recommend this as an engaging look at life in the frontier wilderness of Ohio in the early 1800s. It is a glimpse into the hearts of those who to strove to better the lives of others at an uneasy time in the history of our country.

    "Honor" is a great historical fiction novel with a well written plot and unique story aspects. It is a story dealing with themes of betrayal, trust, forgiveness, compassion, love, faith, and standing up for what is right.

    I liked the character of Honor, a young woman who stands up for what she believes in and does what she knows is right even if it costs her everything she has. Even after she is disinherited and has to leave her home she shows courage. She is compassionate towards others including slaves who come to her for help and to Samuel, the man she marries as an arranged marriage after she was forced to leave her home. She is a good heroine whose name fits her.

    Through Samuel Cathwells character we see a bit of what it would be like to be deaf in the early 1800s. Samuel feels isolated from others because of his deafness and has a hard time making friends and letting others become close to him because of it.

    This book was interesting to read and I enjoyed it. I learned some things about the Quakers and how they helped slaves escape from slavery to freedom, even decades before the Civil War started. This is the first book Ive read by Lyn Cote and I look forward to reading her second book in the Quaker Brides series, "Blessing", when it is released later in 2015. I would recommend this book to those who enjoy reading historical fiction.

    Sexual related content: There are a few mentions of Honor wondering about the marriage bed and also a mention of making love.

    *I received this book for free from Tyndale through Book Fun in exchange for my honest review.
