Ann H. Gabhart's new novel takes us into a mid-19th century woman's internal struggles about her faith and her heart. After teenager Lacey Bishop argues with her, she joins the household of a preacher, his wife, and their orphaned child. When the wife dies, the minister convinces young Lacey to marry him; then, in an unexpected move, he brings the family to live in a Shaker community. For Lacey, his unilateral decision is fraught with complications: She now spends her days and nights wed to a man she only half-knows in a community that shuns marriage as a sin. Worse yet, she feels herself drawn to another man. Is there any safe way out of her soulful quandary? A paperback original.
