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. (Tyndale, September 2014, 379 pp., $14.99)

    Honor

    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.

    Honor by Lyn Cote is an extraordinary tale of one Quaker womans faith and endurance during the time period of 1819-1820. Standing up and having faith in her late fathers abolitionist beliefs, she goes against her grandfathers stubborn will and pro-slavery beliefs. Raised on the High Oaks plantation, Honor was set to inherit her familys legacy however, she was betrayed by her grandfather after he passed on. Now left with only $100 and her maid Royale (a former slave she set free), these two women must leave the only home they have ever known and embark on a new way of life. Due to some unforeseen circumstances, Honor finds herself in a marriage of convenience, quite literally, to a man who is deaf and his three year old nephew who needs a mother. As they head west to Ohio to start their new lives, they come against prejudice, peril, and mans inhumanity to man. Facing all kinds of trials and circumstances, Honor and her little family must learn to trust, depend on, and love each other. However when secrets come to light and are revealed, Honor will need to learn to forgive.

    I was very caught up in this very riveting yet heartbreaking tale. The cover is beautiful and just looking at Honor peering back at me I knew she had an intriguing story to tell. The history of Ohio and its stand on slavery and its role that it played in the Underground Railroad was also very interesting to read about. This was my first Lyn Cote book and I look forward to reading her previous books and the second in the Quaker Bride Series, Blessing. I received this book from The Book Club Network, (TBCN) however, my opinions are my own and I highly recommend this book.

    The cover of this book drew me in right away. It is such a haunting picture, almost robot-like looking. The story begins in 1819. Honor is about to inherit a large estate when her grandfather passes. All she wants to do is let all the slaves go free and sell the estate. When her grandfather hears this he leaves her out of his will and passes the estate on to her cousin. Honor Is forced to leave with little money and her servant, Royale. She goes to a relative of her mother's only to find her dying. The woman's son is deaf from a childhood illness and she teaches Honor how to sign. The only option Honor has is to marry the son when Miriam is on her deathbed. She moves with Samuel, and his young nephew to Ohio, where he has purchased a house and land sight unseen. Honor hates slavery and does whatever she can to help free those under bondage, one at a time. Ohio allows for blacks to be free but it's against federal law to harbor one and help them escape, which Honor does several times without her husband knowing. There are several twists and turns along the way including slave catchers who are always pursuing escaped slaves for rewards. Honor and Samuel, forced to marry, learn more about each other along the way and their relationship develops throughout the book. I love reading fiction based on real history. Lyn has an historical note in the back giving more information about abolition during this period of time. I learned lots that was never taught in my schools through this fiction story based on real history. I'm looking forward to her next book, Blessing, about Honor and Samuel's daughter.

    Lyn Cote in her new book Honor Book One in the Quaker Brides series published by Tyndale House Publishers introduces us to Honor Penworthy.

    From the back cover: Who will you be, if not the lady of High Oaks?

    When unexpected circumstances leave Honor Penworthy destitute, she is forced from her Maryland plantationand the slaves she hoped to free. With no marketable skills, her survival hinges on a marriage arranged through the Quaker community to artisan Samuel Cathwell. Samuel is drawn to Honor, but he has been unwilling to open his heart to anyone since losing his hearing as a child.

    A move west brings the promise of a fresh start, but nothing in Honors 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 secretly becomes 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?

    Strong women. Brave stories.

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

    America in 1819 was an entirely different world than what exists today. Honor is a Southern Plantation lady from Maryland who loses everything and is forced to move to Pennsylvania. How a lady from The South and her maid are going to adapt to an industrial Northern city is already a shell shock experience for me. Then she meets Samuel whom she marries. More shell shock. Then the newlyweds move out West to start a new business and Honor gets involved in The Underground Railroad. Ms. Cote has given us a very exciting story. She has also given us plenty to think about: how Black people were treated, how women were treated and how God has to work through individual problems so that each can heal and move into destiny. Great stuff and I am so looking forward to the next book in this series.
