The Seeker: Book Review

About The Book:



When well-laid plans go awry, can she still make her dreams come true?

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 allow marriage—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 of unforeseen consequences.

Ann H. Gabhart brings alive the strikingly different worlds of the Southern gentry, the simple Shakers, and the ravages of war in 1860s Kentucky to weave a touching story of love, freedom, and forgiveness.

About The Author:

Ann H. Gabhart is the bestselling author of several novels, including The OutsiderThe Believer, and The Seeker. Her latest novel was inspired in part by the many stories her mother and two aunts told her of growing up in small town Kentucky during the 1930s. She lives with her husband a mile from where she was born in Kentucky.

My Review:

The Seeker is the first of Ann H. Gabahart's work that I have read and I loved it! I will definitely be looking to reader her previous work! The Seeker is an exquisite and captivating read with wonderful characters and a well developed storyline. The Seeker is the third in a series, entitled The Shakers, yet can stand alone very well! You will be taken on a historical journey into the Shaker culture and you will see that love will overcome all trials, if you let it. If you are a fan of Christian historical fiction you will love The Seekers!

I highly recommend this book and give it a thumbs up!
