From Library Journal
In early 19th-century Kentucky, 13-year-old Rebecca Blake feels a young girl's love for Adam Scott, who would rather tend sick animals than his father's distilling trade. After the death of her beloved mother, Rebecca is left by her keelboater father with a kindly Shaker sect, whose beliefs she tries to honor even though she can never fully embrace them. She is rejected by the community when she falls in love with Ramsey Sherborne, a titled British labor activist who is visiting the Shakers. As Lady Sherborne, Rebecca helps villagers on her husband's Dorset estate earn a living by preparing Shaker products. Then she loses her young husband, returns to Kentucky and is reunited with Adam. Harper, winner of a 1985 Romantic Times award, has carefully researched her setting and created likable characters, though their conversation is occasionally stilted. Worth adding to collections of romantic fiction.- Kimberly Martin, Washington Univ. Law Lib., St. Louis
