Christmas at Harmony Hill by Ann H. Gabhart
But, the Shakers have peculiar ways. They don't believe in families living together. But, Heather has no other place to go. The baby comes during the Christmas holidays. Heather's thoughts often go to Mary, the mother of Jesus, how she must have felt as she gave birth to the Lord.
A Shaker Christmas novella---what a great idea.Whether you've read any of Gabhart's Shaker books before or not, you're sure to enjoy this one. The author lives near Pleasant Hill, a restored Shaker village that now is open to the public. In all of Gabhart's Shaker stories, you learn about Shaker beliefs and how the Shakers interacted with those who came to them for help. This will make a great Christmas gift for readers of historical fiction.
