Review: The Refuge by:Ann H. Gabhart

 The Refuge
**Disclosure**This book was sent to me free of charge for my honest review from the author. All opinions are my own.

About the Book:
When Darcie and Walter Goodwin hear of a new cholera epidemic sweeping the area, they join the Shakers whose villages seem immune to the disease. 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 . . . and family?

Ann H. Gabhart returns to the enigmatic world of the Shakers in this emotional exploration of the power of love and the bond of family.

My Review:
 Poor Darcie, finds herself in a pickle beyond imagination. she and her husband Walter were seeking refuge in a nearby Shaker village to avoid a cholera epidemic sweeping their immediate area. For some strange reason the people in this village were staying healthy. So the Shakers agree to let them stay temporarily but soon Walter is killed and poor expecting Darcie is left alone to figure this all out on her own. And judging by the Shakers outlook of her and her current situation things are looking mighty dim for poor Darcie.

 The Shakers weren't completely Bible based, I find after reading this book. It was very disheartening how Darcie was treated. Midway, I was praying that someone would come to her rescue and God definitely intervened and sent Flynn her way. By the end of the book, I was very relieved. 

 Ann Gabhart produced another winner!!!
