The Innocent Review

She longs for peace--for her land and her heart--but can it truly be found at Harmony Hill?
Carlyn Kearney has spent two lonely years not knowing whether to mourn or to hope after she receives word from the Union Army that her husband is missing. When the war ends without further word, Carlyn finds herself penniless, in debt, and forced from her home. With nowhere else to go, she seeks refuge at the Shaker village of Harmony Hill.

The Shakers profess peace through simple living, but to Carlyn, the Shaker life seems anything but simple. When mysterious deaths disturb the peace of the village, Carlyn falls under intense scrutiny. Can a kind sheriff help her expose the true culprit?

The Innocent by Ann H. Gabhart was a book that I enjoyed immensely. I liked both of the main characters, Carlyn and Mitchell, and their story. This is the first book I have ever read about the Shaker community and I found it to be very informative. This is also the first time I have read a book by Ann and I now look forward to reading more of her writing. I'm pretty sure I have one of her books in my tbr kindle pile (which is way to big). I have a vacation coming soon though and I think I have one of the books that will be coming with me. :)

5 out of 5. A delightful Afternoon Snack.

I received a copy of this book from Revell in exchange for my honest review.
