About the Book
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 marry --- she is left dumbfounded. With the country --- and her own household --- on the brink of civil war, this pampered gentlewoman hatches a plan to avoid her family 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 toward unforeseen peace --- and a very unexpected love.
