Jessamine Brady is parent-less, so she has been raised by a Shaker family. Jessamine wasn't quite old enough to sign into the formal Shaker lifestyle forever, but she was getting close to that age. So here she is, picking berries and low and behold! A man named Tristan has been shot, and so Jessamine and her friend take this man from the outside world to their Doctor. The Shaker rules are quite restrictive, you just think you knew rules from the Amish! So now our young lady has a man who is different, and who she has some feelings for, and she has helped him which is against the rules of course. But really, if the rules are partly to use your hands to work, and give your hearts to God, then how could she leave this man alone to die instead of help him? What about Shaker's not marrying? Doesn't that complicate things terribly!
Well Jessamine is about to find herself, her gift, Tristian's gift, and at the same time have to figure out if this is the life she really wants live.
The thousands of loyal fans of Gabhart's Shaker novels will love this entrancing story of learning to trust the gifts God gives us and let him guide us through life.
Jessamine Brady has been in the Shaker Village for half her young life, but in spite of how she loves her sisters there, she struggles to conform to the strict rules. Instead she entertains dreams of the world outside. When Tristan Cooper seems to step out of those dreams to entice her into the forbidden realm beyond the Shaker Village, her life turns upside down.
Will Jessamine be able to survive the storms of the world? Or will she retreat back to the peace of Harmony Hill?
