LESLIE RODRIGUEZ3 Stars Out Of 5September 13, 2008LESLIE RODRIGUEZFirst, I'd like to say I found this book difficult to read due to the emotional abuse of this religious group to their own believers, whom pledged to love. I, for one would never had made it, as a Shaker. Even as a Christian, I would escaped the moment they separated me from my children. The brow-beatings of Sister Helen and counseling of Sister Mercy were merciless and down-right hateful. The author did exceptional historical research with the War and the lifestyle and beliefs of the Shaker community. However, I had hoped Mrs. Gabhart would have developed more details for all the characters not just Gabrielle and Dr. Scott. I would have been nice to know if Gabrielle's father survived imprisonment. And more character development of Elder Caleb was needed.Overall, I would recommend this book. I was very informative and shows how God's true love is revealed to those who seek him.

Gloria Glider5 Stars Out Of 5September 6, 2008Gloria GliderIn 2006, we visted the Shaker village in Ky.The setting of the book brought back what wehad learned while we were there. A very heart-felt story and one that shows how hard it is to walk away from the way you are raised.
