The current simplicity movement created renewed interest in the Shakers -- a devoutly religious sect that celebrates chastity, diligence, and prayer and of which there are only seven remaining in the world. In this inspiring and beautiful story, Suzanne Skees relates her experiences living with the remaining community of Shakers and offers a rare, first-person glimpse of what their world is truly like.Skees met the Shakers while in divinity school and was immediately attracted to their work ethic, theories of communal ownership, and unyielding faith. Visiting with them as one of their own, she was afforded unprecedented access to their cloistered existence, the details of which she explains in this moving portrait. Skees offers thoughtful, personal reflections on the values of the Shaker faith and shows how the Shaker way has much to offer each of us as we struggle to find meaning in our daily lives.… (mehr)

Great news! You're going to like this ghastly book a lot better than I did. It concerns itself more with the space between a navel-gazing liberal Catholic's ears and her 'spiritual quest' to escape modernity than it does with Shakers. I very quickly tired of being preached to. ( )

A well-written book with very descriptive language and lots of information. The author was a theologian, married with three young sons who wondered if she would want to become a Shaker if she spent an extended period of time with them. She takes the reader along on her journey of discovery. ( )
