-- "An engrossing achievement". -- Kirkus, pointer review

Hope and her younger brother, John, went to live with the Shakers because they had no other choice. Ma had died, Pa was off in the California gold fields, and Uncle Josiah didn't want to raise them. But men and women, even boys and girls, must live apart in the Shaker village; that's just one of their strange rules. And although Hope grows to respect these kind and industrious people, she never stops longing to be reunited with her father.
