The Refuge, Paperback / softback Book


When Darcie and Walter Goodwin hear of a new cholera epidemic sweeping the area, they join the Shakers whose villages seem immune to the disease.

It's meant to be a temporary stay, but Walter is killed in a riverboat accident.

With no family and no money, Darcie has little choice but to stay with the Shakers.

To complicate matters, she is expecting a baby conceived before she and her husband came to the Shaker village.

Marital relationships are considered sinful in this celibate community, putting Darcie in a unique--and lonely--position.

Can the arrival of widower Flynn Keller and his headstrong daughter offer Darcie the hope of happiness . . . and family?Ann H. Gabhart returns to the enigmatic world of the Shakers in this emotional exploration of the power of love and the bond of family.
