Charlotte Vance is a young woman who knows what she wants. But when the man she planned to marry joins the Shakers—a religious group that does not marry—she is left dumbfounded. And when her father brings home a new wife who is young enough to be Charlotte’s sister, it is more than she can bear. With the country—and her own household—on the brink of civil war, this pampered gentlewoman hatches a plan to avoid her new stepmother and win back her man by joining the Shaker community at Harmony Hill. Little does she know that this decision will lead her down a road toward unforeseen peace—and a very unexpected love.

Ann H. Gabhart brings alive the strikingly different worlds of the Southern gentry, the simple Shakers, and the ravages of war to weave a touching story of love, freedom, and forgiveness that sticks with readers long after they have turned the last page.

Listener Opinions

    " This is story by Ann Gabhart in Shaker series #3"The Seeker" I liked how Charlotte grew as a person and although she was raised as a "Lady" not having to work when she was put into a situation that work was needed she was a good worker never shirked her duty. She thought all was lost and continued in this lifestyle for some time. I was happy to see that the artist she met briefly became a big part of her life and that she never completly joined the Shakers. The author of this story did a great job of research on all the war paragraphs. I dont like to read about was very much but she seemed to list it well. "

    " I liked this book. I picked it up off the new release shelf at the library because I recognized the author's name, and was pretty sure I had liked her last book. After I started getting into this book, I remembered the previous book more clearly, and found that I liked this book much better. There was a lot of good historical information in it, and more written about the civil war than the Shaker lifestyle, which I feel made for a more interesting story. And its nice to read a book with a truly happy ending every so often. "

    " A "Christian" book which is slow developing but gave an interesting view of Plantation and Shaker life and our Civil War. The story includes the disapointment of a cancelled marriage, a father who remarries a bossy woman who takes over the plantation, our hero Charlotte, her friend and slave, Mellie, and an artist who meets Charlotte once and begins loving Charlotte. "

    " This was one of my favorite Shaker books written by Ann Gabhart. I like the background story of the Civil War. I also like the story of Charlotte and the plantation and her stepmother Selena. I've enjoyed all of these books but this one is by far my favorite. "
