Heather is not a weak-willed woman. No, she has been following her husband along the road that the army forces him on as a washer-woman. Now, she is expecting their child and the cold, barren warfront is not the place to birth a baby. So her dear husband, Gideon, sends her home. Only home isn’t helpful, so she carries on to her aunt’s home among the Shakers, an odd lot, but open to helping strangers.
Ann Gabhart tells a lovely story of family and faith in the pages of Christmas at Harmony Hill. Heather and Sophrena’s hearts knit together while they wait for the coming of Christmas and this baby. Sorrow has played unfair games with both of them and they need to learn the ways of the Christ child in order to come to a place of peace. Heather longs for Gideon and Gideon longs for an end to the fighting. Sophrena longs for something but she isn’t quite sure what that is. Heather’s father longs for his wife, but that is not to be.
Will forgiveness win the day? Will the war bring Gideon home to Heather? Will Heather’s father soften? Will Sophrena find answers to the questions knocking at her heart’s door?
Sorry, I won’t tell you the answers, you’ll have to find yourself a copy of Christmas at Harmony Hill to read by the fire on a cold winter’s night!
