REDFIELD FARM explores the paradox between peoples' professed beliefs and their actions. The main characters are Quaker and live in a solidly Quaker community. Quakers are non-violent yet the actions of the two main characters will go to any lengths to help fugitive slaves escape. Quakers believe in equality, yet when a mixed-race child is born they turn their backs and are uncomfortable with the child. Quakers are pacifists yet two brothers go off to war to fight for their country. Ann Redfield's strength is derived from her Quaker faith, yet she is thrown out of the church for an act of love. She is steadfast in her determination to live her faith, not just profess it. Ann's life is testament to the true meaning of the Quaker teachings.REDFIELD FARM is thoroughly researched for accuracy. The author is a history professor and historical researcher.
