The Gifted by Ann Gabhart Book Review
Have you ever wanted to learn more about a certain faith or group of people but find history books boring and not really that informative? I love that Ann Gabhart does just that.
Ann Gabhart takes you into the Shaker Village. She makes me feel like I'm a fly on the wall and I can even hear the characters thoughts. I love when an author can bring history alive.
As much as I love the history aspect, I found that there were a lot of words in this book, that could have been left out and still make a point. I caught myself skimming across chapters more than once.
At the end of the book, I felt like I had been left hanging. Although some of the story had closed, I would suspect it would need a follow up to some of the characters.
All in all, I would give the book 3 stars out of 5.
Blessings to you! You are loved!
