Book Review: "Christmas at Harmony Hill"

Ann H. Gabhart's Christmas novel, "Christmas at Harmony Hill: A Shaker Story," is a read that takes you back in time to the mid 1800's with a story of hope and forgiveness.

Heather Worth is in the midst of the Civil War alongside her Yankee husband; however she is pregnant and near to the time for the baby's birth, so her husband sends her home.  However, Heather is turned away from her home.  Heather is directed to go to the Shaker community to be with her aunt and this appears to be just what Heather needs at this time, as well as some others.

I really enjoyed this book!  It is a quick read and one that will have you hooked on the story right from the very beginning!  I love reading stories from this time period and this one being a story focusing on the Shaker community as well is an added bonus as there are so many historical details and facts about this community.  This is a book that will enjoyed each Christmas!

 “Available November 2013 at your favorite bookseller from Revell, a division of Baker Publishing Group.”

  1. Hello!

    A friend of mine just published her second book and I am helping to put a book blog tour together for her. This is book two in a three book series but can stand alone. Here's the book blub:

    The Scent of Fear by Susan J. Reinhardt

    After three years of tenuous peace, John and Ellie Zimmerman are shocked when two old friends show up in disguise. Their world is once again sent into turmoil.

    Jim Kenneman, Director of National Security, masterminded the break up of a group persecuting Christians in the Lancaster Tourist Zone. Now, they're gunning for him. At first, he relies on his negotiating skills, but his best operative convinces him that won't work.

    Monty, a topnotch operative, worked on the Bird-in-Hand assignment and helped bring down the New Patriots. A recurring dream prompts him to rescue his boss from possible murder. The agency might not be sending him on assignment, but he knows God is directing his path - one that could wreck his career, family, and cost him his life.

    Dr. Abby Weaver strives to save infants and toddlers in Holmes County, Ohio. When she meets two strangers, she can't get the tall, handsome one out of her mind. Will their paths intersect again or will dangerous times keep them apart?
    This book would be labeled under Amish Futuristic Suspense. If you would like to be a part of the blog tour, I would be happy to forward a PDF copy of the book to you and then set up a schedule of when everyone would post their reviews. I am hoping to get the blog tour together in December and there will also be a $25 Amazon GC and book giveaway involved also. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact me. Thanks for your consideration!
