About the book:

     How can unexpected visitors turn one’s world upside down?

     Honor Penworthy, a young Maryland lady, tries to keep faith with a friends amidst family turmoil.

     But the stakes rise higher when the war that seemed so far away comes dangerously close to her and those she loves.

     What a difference three days can make in one life – leaving a legacy of conflict but with honor.

My review:

     A fascinating introduction to the Quakers!

     I enjoyed this look at how women were treated in 1814. This story is very short so we don’t learn a lot about Honor. She seems to be a very strong woman and I liked seeing one of the key events in her life that helped to develop her characters for book one in this new series.

     I have never read anything about the Quakers before this story. I was amazed to find out that some of them were wealthy land owners who also owned slaves. I’m really looking forward to finding out more about them in the rest of this series.

     This short novelette is getting a rating of 5 stars from me. I highly recommend it.
