Heather and Gideon Worth married without Heather's father's consent. When the Civil War broke out, Heather became a washerwoman for the Union troops so she could travel with her husband. In 1864, the troops are on the move again, and Gideon asks his pregnant wife to go home to her family to have the baby. The couple's faith is tested at the parting. Will Gideon survive the war to meet his child? Will Heather's father forgive her for marrying a Yankee? It seems that all is for naught when Heather finds herself turned away from home, her faith shaken by her father's unkindness. She seeks refuge with her Aunt Sophronia at the Harmony Hill Shaker community. Unfortunately, Sophronia is having her own crisis of faith. VERDICT Amish fiction readers will enjoy Gabhart's insights into a similar religious community, while the author's fans will enjoy returning to Harmony Hill (The Gifted; The Blessed) for the holidays in this seasonal story of faith, hope, and love.
