Charlotte Vance is a young woman who knows what she wants. But when the The Seekerman she planned to marry joins the Shakers – a religious group that does not marry – 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 toward unforeseen peace – and a very unexpected love.
The Seeker brings alive the strikingly different worlds of the Southern gentry, the simple Shakers, and the ravages of war to weave a touching story of love, freedom, and forgiveness that sticks with readers long after they have turned the last page.
“Gabhart’s absorbing coming-of-age Christian historical novel deftly juxtaposes Adam’s and Charlotte’s internal faith journeys against a backdrop of unusual settings. Also recommended for Civil War buffs and Shaker aficionados.” – Booklist
“The third book in Gabhart’s Shaker series is an amazing read. The characters must make decisions they never thought they would have to face. Gabhart continues to surprise and treat her fans with her vast knowledge of Shaker history.”
