Summer on Sunset Ridge by Sharlene MacLaren with a giveaway

I love when an author writes a great book with Quakers in it. This was a wonderful story. I love reading about the Civil War and the quakers part in it. I loved Rebecca and Clay. Rebecca learns many lessons in growing up. Clay learns many also. They are great together. I hope there might be more books located in Sunset Ridge. I received a copy of this book from Celebratelit for a fair and honest opinion which I gave of my own free will.Book: Summer on Sunset Ridge, Freedom Series Book 1
Author: Sharlene MacLaren
Genre: Historical Christian Romance
Brought up on a Quaker farm near Philadelphia at the brink of the Civil War, plainspoken Rebecca Albright is charitable, peace-loving, submissive—and a feisty abolitionist. Determined to aid the Underground Railroad no matter what the cost, her path collides with that of formidable slave-catcher Clay Dalton. When Rebecca is assigned to nurse Clay back to health following a near-fatal gunshot wound, her uneasiness around him and the questions surrounding his mysterious past complicate their strained but developing relationship.
Sherriff Clay Dalton is grimly fighting several battles of his own as he stays on at the Albright farm to work off his debt to the family that has saved his life and taken him in. He is torn between his past commitments in the South and his unlikely present among this quiet Quaker community in the North. Almost against his will, he begins to ponder the impossible idea of a future with Rebecca.…
When tensions between North and South escalate, Rebecca and Clay find themselves propelled on a journey to discover just who God has called them to be, and they soon realize that each holds a key to the other’s answer.
