Will a forbidden love destroy all they know?

Elizabeth Duncan has nowhere to turn. In charge of her younger brother and sister after their parents die, her options are limited: she can give in to the unwanted advances of an odious landowner—or she can flee. When Elizabeth hears that the Shaker community in the next county takes in orphans, she presents herself and her siblings at Harmony Hill. Despite the hard work and strange new beliefs around her, Elizabeth is relieved to have a roof overhead and food to eat.

But life gets complicated when she finds herself attracted to a handsome young Believer named Ethan. Ethan has never looked on the opposite sex as anything but sisters, but he can’t shake the new feelings that Elizabeth has awakened in him. Will Elizabeth be forced to leave the village to keep Ethan from stumbling? Or could Ethan’s love for her change their lives forever?

Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kelly | 2/20/2014

    " I read the first book in the series and realized that I know nothing about Shakers, other than I adore the Shaker style of furniture. I was a bit shocked and would like to do a bit of research on Shakers. I look forward to finishing this book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Esther | 2/12/2014

    " Had my interest from the very beginning to the very end. A story about three siblings who's parents died and they were left to fend for themselves. To avoid disaster, they joined the Shakers. But the eldest falls in love with a Shaker, which is forbidden. I enjoyed reading about the Shaker culture and beliefs, very believable... "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Amanda | 2/9/2014

    " The book was a good!!! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lauren | 1/2/2014

    " This book was sweet at times, awkward at others. It was one of those easy, don't think too hard, break-from-your-day kinds of books. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Barbara | 12/29/2013

    " I learned alot about the Shaker religion from this book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Nancy | 12/27/2013

    " Elizabeth brings her brother and sister with her to a Shaker community seeking refuge after her father's death. The Shaker way of life is a fit for one of them, but not the other two. Which life will Elizabeth choose? "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Diamond Jones | 12/26/2013

    " This is the second book I have read dealing with the Shakers. I enjoyed this alot more than the first. I was a bit sadden about brother Paten's decision though. If you like the amish and the first shakers book, you will love this one. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kristy | 12/26/2013

    " This book was interesting to learn more about a unique religion and imagine how different life would be in this type of situation. It wasn't a page turner, but I enjoyed it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Wanda | 12/1/2013

    " A very good story about the Shakers. I was surprised at their core beliefs. Now I consider them a cult rather than a Christian sect. I would recommend it as a good read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Nicole | 3/17/2013

    " Even though I'm not done with this book, I love it. I read The Outsider and loved that book also. I think it's a great book if you like Amish fiction, even though this is not about the Amish. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Charlene | 1/6/2013

    " It was good to read about the Shaker beliefs, never knew about their traditions. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Debbie | 1/3/2013

    " It was really interesting reading about the Shakers and their beliefs. The story kind of dragged on though. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 April | 9/24/2012

    " Interesting glimpse into the Shaker religion. The story itself was okay. I found it a little too filled with the characters thoughts which were repeated over and over again. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Odetta | 9/16/2012

    " I did not like this book. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Shirlyn | 8/5/2012

    " interesting abou the Shaker religion, but too much of a romance novel for my liking "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Liz Bottner | 7/23/2012

    " This was the first book I have read by this author and I very much enjoyed it. I also was not aware that this was the second in the series and want to go find the other two books. This book gives a nice history of the Shaker tradition in addition to telling its main story. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Katie | 5/2/2012

    " Pretty predictable, but well written and informative of a religious cult I had never heard of before. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Megan | 3/28/2012

    " A sweet clean love story with just enough peril to keep it interesting. The main theme is beaten to death a bit with the whole love and marriage is a sin but I love this woman stuff. But still, I liked the book. "
