Book review - Christmas at Harmony Hill by Ann H. Gabhart

Publisher's blurb: 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.

My Review: For the most part, I enjoyed this book. I found the characters both likable & believable. However, I must say, I don't think I much care for the Shaker lifestyle. It was a good book overall, and I would recommend it to others.
