Summary
  • "Darcie and Walter Goodwin join a Shaker village to escape a cholera epidemic, but when Walter dies, Darcie is left alone--and lonely. Can love live again for this widow in a community that doesn't believe in marriage?"--
  • 1849. Darcie and Walter Goodwin join a Shaker village to escape a cholera epidemic sweeping the area. It's meant to be a temporary stay, but Walter is killed in a riverboat accident. With no family and no money, Darcie has little choice but to stay with the Shakers. To complicate matters, she is expecting a baby conceived before she and her husband came to the Shaker village. Marital relationships are considered sinful in this celibate community, putting Darcie in a unique-- and lonely-- position. Can the arrival of widower Flynn Keller and his headstrong daughter offer Darcie the hope of happiness? -- adapted from back cover
