Baker & Taylor
Longing to bring her twin brother some measure of comfort in the squalid, frigid prison where he remains, Quaker Hannah Sunderland must decide whether she will sit by and do nothing while he suffers or if she will disobey those she loves--and abandon a bedrock of her faith--by gaining access to the men in prison, whom a spy ring led by Jeremiah Jones is seeking to free. Original.

Baker Publishing Group
As lives hang in the balance, a young woman must choose between helping the man she's come to love and holding onto her pacifist faith.
Hannah Sunderland felt content in her embrace of the Quaker faith ...until her twin brother ran off and joined the army and ended up captured and in jail. Suddenly Hannah's world turns on end. She longs to bring her brother some measure of comfort in the squalid, frigid prison where he remains. But the Quakers believe they are not to take sides, not to take up arms. Can she sit by and do nothing while he suffers?Jeremiah Jones has an enormous task before him. Responsibility for a spy ring is now his, and he desperately needs access to the men in prison, whom they are seeking to free. A possible solution is to garner a pass for Hannah. But while she is fine to the eye, she holds only disdain for him--and agreeing would mean disobeying those she loves and abandoning a bedrock of her faith. With skill and sensitivity, Mitchell tells a story of two unlikely heroes seeking God's voice, finding the courage to act, and discovering the powerful embrace of love.

This story got off to a slow start, but after a few chapters it was interesting - the romance is unique and hearing about a young Quaker working through questions of personal faith against the backdrop of the Quaker community's expectations was interesting.
