SUMMER ON SUNSET RIDGE
Brought up on a Quaker farm near Philedelphia at the brink of the Civil War, plainspoken Rebecca Albright is expected to be charitable, peace-loving and submissive. However, those traits don't always come naturally to the feisty abolitionists. Spirit and spunky, Rebecca's chief ambition is to aid the Underground Railroad no matter the cost -- until her path collides with Sheriff Clay Dalton who is grimly fighting battles of his own. When tensions between the North and South escalate, the two find themselves propelled on a journey to discover just who God has called them to be -- and to determine whether their newfound friendship can stand up to a myriad of conflicts.

I do so love a spirited and spunky heroine and Rebecca is all that and more! But she's also a devout Quaker and I love the contradictions...which aren't really contradictions if she's following God's leading in her life. MacLaren has included lots of fascinating details about the Quakers that has left me with a greater understanding and respect for the faith.
Great family dynamics within the Albright clan provide the perfect backdrop for Rebecca and Clay's unlikely friendship. Neither are free to act on the attraction that threaten to draw them into a forbidden relationship. Angst and yearning, laughter and hope -- it's all such a tangled mess of delectable page-turning.
"God is designing us, piece by piece like so many quilts. In the moment, it's difficult to envision what we'll look like in the end, but He sees the finished product, and it is our place to trust Him to put us together as He sees fit."
