Revell Blog Tour and Book Review:The Seeker
The setting against the backdrop of the Civil War was rich in authenticity and flavor. Each nuance of the Shaker cultural played an intricate part in the story and I learned a great deal about their belief system.
The love story was endearing and heart pounding. The first scene in the garden of the plantation just about took my breath away. What a wonderful way to open the book with an unexpected kiss from a complete stranger, good looking as can be!
THE SEEKER was rift with conflict and turmoil and it played vividly before my eyes, eliciting many emotions, from anger to joy.
The one thing I would have liked better shown would have been more of the true faith of God to be spoken of, instead of just the false religion of the Shakers, but I do think in the end the point was made, I would have just liked it to be stronger.
All in all, this was an enthralling read and I enjoyed every minute of it.
Thanks to Revell for my copy to review. This review is my honest opinion.
