FROM THE ACCLAIMED AUTHOR OF THE LAST PEARL AND DANCING AT THE VICTORY CAFE, this is a beautiful novel about dark family secrets, betrayal, love and redemption.

1666. A child is born in the farmhouse at Windebank, in the West Riding of Yorkshire. Named Rejoice (Joy) by her dying father, Joy grows up witness to the persecution of the farming community for following a banned faith. Defying the authority of the local priest, she joins a group of Yorkshire pioneers travelling to the New World to form a colony close to Philadelphia - a passionate, rebellious and courageous woman fighting against the constraints of the time. Will she find peace and love?

2014. A leather-bound book is found buried in the walls of the Meeting House in Good Hope, Pennsylvania. Its details trace the owner back to a Yorkshire farm in the Dales. And so a correspondence begins between Rachel Moorside and the man who found the journal, Sam Storer, as Rachel uncovers the tumultuous secrets of her family's history.

What a lovely and poignant story. Very unique and very special. I’ve not read many stories set within the Quaker community and nothing with a main character such as Rejoice. I found myself cheering her on in many ways and admired her for what she did and believe in. The conditions that she and others must have gone through were harsh and at times hard to read. There was no role for women at that time and it was admirable that she was the person she was.

The times may have been ruthless but Leah’s portrayal of it was evocative and lusciously descriptive. Immersive is a word that only some historical novels really achieve but this was one one them. It wasn’t just the historical part of the weave which made this story however. The modern day threads were equally as strong and oh – that book being found – love stories like this where diaries, walls are whispering to us from the past. This one is really well woven.

Joy is joy of a character to go on a journey with and what a journey it was!
