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.

Long-Winded
3 stars By sarah, Apr 17 2015
Set in 1844, this is the story of a young woman who feels pushed out of her family home and seeks refuge with the Shaker community of the time. It is an interesting premise, considering the Shaker communities beliefs differ from mainstream Christianity. However, I found this far too lengthy and drawn out. The author could have conveyed the story in a shorter text. I found it hard to push through to the end, despite the storyline being otherwise engaging. 
I wouldn't recommend this book, but one of Ann's other novels which are excellent.
