Description: Four Quakers of New Garden face trials of the heart. When Josiah Wall postpones his marriage to Ruth Payne for a second time, Ruth is reluctant to give him another chance at love. Deborah Wall is thrilled to work at a hub of the Underground Railroad, until wounded Nathaniel Foxâ€”a bounty hunter for runaway slavesâ€”is left to her care. Leah Wall struggles to turn a marriage of convenience into a marriage of love. Christian Jaidon Taylor pursues Quaker Catherine Wallâ€”but she's convinced their differences will forever keep them apart. Will these women withstand the test of love?
Review: I really liked the story lines for all the books. They were well thought out and easy to read except for the â€˜thee' â€˜thou' and like language. It was OK at the start but became a noose during the reading because the weighed down the dialogue. I struggled through this with the start of each story until I could block it out. It seemed to me that it should have been phased out and I doubt that it would have bothered me. They were fun to see them blend from one part of the family to the next with characters that would pop into other stories. I am glad that I read it over all and look forward to hearing good things from these authors in the future.
I would like to thank Net Galley and Barbour Publishing, Inc. for allowing me to read and review this book in return for a free copy and I was never asked to write a favorable review by anyone.
This is a super nice collection of 4 stories about the Friends(Quakers). I always enjoy reading what I can about them! If you are new to reading about them they use thee and thou, but it always is great stories and it will take to a different place and time so grab the book and enjoy! :)
