The story had some interesting elements, but did tend to drag on at times. I got bored about halfway through, but finished reading the book as I wanted to see how it would end. Interesting to read about the Shakers’ way of life.

Wow what a scary cult the shakers were. Was slightly disturbing reading about their demon worship under the guise of angels.
