About the Book



Book: Summer on Sunset Ridge, Freedom Series Book 1  

Author: Sharlene MacLaren  

Genre: Historical Christian Romance

Brought up on a Quaker farm near Philadelphia at the brink of the Civil War, plainspoken Rebecca Albright is charitable, peace-loving, submissive—and a feisty abolitionist. Determined to aid the Underground Railroad no matter what the cost, her path collides with that of formidable slave-catcher Clay Dalton. When Rebecca is assigned to nurse Clay back to health following a near-fatal gunshot wound, her uneasiness around him and the questions surrounding his mysterious past complicate their strained but developing relationship.

Sherriff Clay Dalton is grimly fighting several battles of his own as he stays on at the Albright farm to work off his debt to the family that has saved his life and taken him in. He is torn between his past commitments in the South and his unlikely present among this quiet Quaker community in the North. Almost against his will, he begins to ponder the impossible idea of a future with Rebecca.…

When tensions between North and South escalate, Rebecca and Clay find themselves propelled on a journey to discover just who God has called them to be, and they soon realize that each holds a key to the other’s answer.


MY REVIEW- I found this book to be a much different style than I normally expect from Sharlene MacLaren. I love her historical novels and while this one is historical, it is also about Quakers. But don't get me wrong, that doesn't mean I didn't love it any less! This is a story that pulls you in from the beginning, a tale of courage and strength, of passion and fight. If you don't care for stories about the Civil War, this one is probably not for you. But while I am not a big fan of them, my interest was kept throughout the whole book. An intriguing story, rich in detail and history!
