The Refuge by Ann H. Gabhart

42244975The Refuge

Ann Gabhart is a fantastic writer, so I very intrigued and taken with her latest book The Refuge. This book is done well with the research the Shakers, which is a something I was unfamiliar with until I had read this book. Losing her husband, Darcie had to stay with them, especially since she was going to have a baby, but would they allow her to stay? 
Flynn and Leatrice run around of food. How will Flynn provide for his daughter? Will the Shaker community be able to assist or will the rules be to too strict? 
This story is one of great community, good characters and how people are willing to help each other. This story has elements of faith, trust and grace. It also has an element of standing up for truth and what you believe in. I enjoyed this book.
