Blog Tour Book Review: The Seeker by Ann H. Gabhart
Not one to stand idly by, Charlotte escapes her stepmother's plans for her and goes after the man she wants to marry. She joins the Shaker community with hopes convince her fiance to return with her and set everything right. But all does not go according to Charlotte's plan and she finds herself on a new path - one she never would have dreamed of!
I thought this story was very well rounded. I learned a lot about the Shakers that I never knew before - I just thought they were the same as the Amish but this book did a great job pointing out the differences. Also, the insight into the people surrounding the civil war was really good. The plot moved at a good pace and the characters were great! I also loved how the romance came about - very creative. A thoroughly enjoyable read.
Thanks to Revell publishers for a free copy of this book to review.
