I've visited several Shaker villages and read much about their lifestyle and work, but this is the first thing I've read from this perspective. All Shakers weren't in the villages voluntarily. This is a very interesting fictional account of this period in Kentucky. I also enjoyed the other two books in this series (which are not about the Shakers).
