The Believer by Ann H. Gabhart


If you have been reading my blog for any length of time, you know of my love for Amish themed books. While this one is not exactly Amish, but Shaker instead, it still kept my attention from the first page till the last one. I was rooting for Elizabeth and her siblings all the way through the book. I had never read this author before, but after this book, I will be sure to look for her others.


In The Believer, Elizabeth Duncan has nowhere to turn once her parents die and she is left in charge of her younger brother and sister. When she hears that the Shaker community in the next county takes in orphans, she presents herself and her siblings at Harmony Hill. Despite the hard work and strange new beliefs around her, Elizabeth is relieved to have a roof overhead and food to eat. But when she feels a strong attachment to a handsome young Believer named Ethan, life gets complicated. Ethan has never looked on the opposite sex as anything but sisters, but he can't shake the new feelings that Elizabeth has awakened in him. Will Elizabeth be forced to leave the village to keep Ethan from stumbling? Or will Ethan's love for her change their lives forever?


Ann H. Gabhart is the author of the successful Shaker-inspired novel The Outsider. Living just thirty miles from a restored Shaker village in Kentucky, she has walked the same paths that her characters might have walked in generations past. Her thorough research provides a convincing and colorful backdrop for her Shaker novels.
