Emily Harrison's life has been turned upside down. At the
beginning of the Civil War, she bravely attempted to
continue her parents' work as conductors in the Underground
Railroad until their Ohio farm was sold in foreclosure. Now
alone, she accepts a position as a governess with a doctor's
family in slave-holding Virginia. Perhaps she can
continue her rescue efforts from there.
Alexander Hunt is the doctor's handsome nephew. While he
does not deny a growing attraction to his uncle's newest
employee, he cannot take time to pursue Emily. Alex is not
at all what he seems - rich, spoiled, and
indolent. He is the elusive Gray Wraith, a Quaker leader of
Rebel partisans. A man of the shadows, he carries no firearm
and wholeheartedly believes in Emily's antislavery
The path before Alex and Emily is complicated and
sometimes life threatening. The war brings betrayal,
entrapment, and danger to both of them. Amid their growing
feelings for each other, can they find faith in God amid the
challenges they face and trust in the possibility for a
bright future together?

Re: The Quaker and the Rebel
Looks like an interesting book. I love to read a story where the characters not only rely on themselves, but on a higher
power to help work out their problems. As a history buff,
the story line is tantalizing. :) Good luck on this book, again, sounds like a good one.
