    THE SEEKER by Ann H. Gabhart is an Inspirational historical fiction set in 1861 Mercer County, Kentucky. It is an inspiring story of love and sacrifice. It is well written with details and depth. It has faith, devotion, courage, sacrifice, betrayal, forgiveness, grace, freedom, slavery, and love that blooms despite the circumstances.The characters are selfish, strong, and will draw you into the story and keep you wanting more. It is a fast paced, page turning story. The heroine, Charlotte, is a true Southern Belle thrust into the world of the Shakers for her safety and seclusion. The hero, Adam, does illustrations for a newspaper, he is brought into Charlotte's life by her new stepmother. He and Charlotte will become close through their trials and tribulation. This is a wonderful love story even through the ravages of war in 1860 Kentucky, it weaves forgiveness, freedom,love, the different worlds between the simple Shaker world and the world of the Southern belle. I would highly recommend this story for it is truly in inspiring story, gives some insight into the Shaker world, and shows how love can overcome the atrocities around us. This book was received for review and details can be found at Revell and My Book Addiction and More.

    This is a well written story. A christian romance. Such an innocent story.

    This was an excellent story right up until the end when the story didn’t play the very ending. I’m sure the written book had an end. I looked up the book & it did have a good ending!

    Charlotte is a Southern belle living on a plantation in Kentucky just before the outbreak of the Civil war. Her world is turned upside down when her father remarries and her new Stepmother arrives--with an agenda that seeks to exclude Charlotte from her beloved home. Charlotte had hoped to marry a neighboring plantation heir and so secure her future, but he decides to join the Shaker community which forbids marriage. Frustrated Charlotte is forced to take drastic actions to protect her interests--and those she cares for--all the while wondering about the sudden attraction a visiting artist has shown in her.While enjoyable enough, I found parts of this historical tale to be implausible, which annoyed me as I was reading it. I'm sure the description of the Shaker community was accurate enough, but the behavior of it's members, and even Charlotte and her father seemed unlikely. Read this one for a sweet romance that will take you away from reality for a while--just don't expect to feel like it's entirely authentic.
