Publisher's Summary

It is 1844 and Lacey Bishop's life is a tangled mess. Estranged from her own family, at age 16 she went to work for a preacher and his wife. When his wife died, the preacher convinced Lacey that the only decent thing to do was to marry him. That way she could continue to act as mother to the little girl who was left on his doorstop. But Lacey never expected he would decide to take them all off to a Shaker village. In the Shaker village, Lacey’s still married but living in a community that believes marriage is a sin. And to make matters worse, she finds herself drawn to Isaac Kingston, a man who came to the Shakers after his young bride died. But of course any notion of love between them is only a forbidden dream. How will Lacey ever find true happiness?

Fascinating to learn about the Shakers

It was a good listen! Fascinating to learn their contributions to us all! Too bad they didn't consider all of Scripture in their beliefs!

The Blessed: A Novel

This is the first book written by Ann Gaphart. The book is read well but I struggled keeping the interest in the book. It moved very slow and I found the story very unbelievable.
