Christmas at Harmony Hill

About

She stared up at the Shaker buildings. They took in those in need. That was why she was riding into their village. But she couldn’t stay here. Not forever. They divided families. She’d heard her grandmother speak harshly of the way Shakers didn’t believe in marriage and had special houses where children were kept from their parents.
Heather put a hand over the swell of her baby inside her. Surely they wouldn’t take a newborn from his mother’s bosom. Heather’s mother couldn’t have imagined that happening or she’d have never told her to come . . .

A stirring story of healing, hope, and home at Christmas It is 1864 and the nation is torn apart by civil war when Heather Worth discovers she is with child. With her husband at the front and nowhere else to turn, she seeks refuge in the Shaker village of Harmony Hill. Amid the tumult of the times, Heather yearns for the peace she sees in this strange community. But can this longing really be fulfilled amid these people with their peculiar beliefs about family?
As Christmas approaches, the joy of new life and the love that is born of forgiveness may hold the answer.
Join bestselling author Ann H. Gabhart for a peek into the world of the Shakers–and the world of the human heart.

MY THOUGHTS ON THIS BOOK

I really enjoyed this historical shaker Christmas story. I have read several books by Ann Gabhart and the Shakers, and  I enjoyed reading Gideon and Heather’s story. These two had their struggles, but as I always enjoy about Ms. Gabhart’s writing, she clearly shows that God is about to carry us through our difficult situations and struggles.  You will grow to love the characters just as I did, they just warm you heart! If you are looking for a cozy little book to read, here is your book! Christmas at Harmony Hill is a novella so it doesn’t take a long time to read.

I received this book from the publisher David C. Cook  to read and review.  I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission’s 16 CFR, Part 55.
