The Visionist

by Rachel Urquhart

A haunting, gripping story set in a farming community in Massachusetts, 1842. The story is told by three of the characters who are inexorably drawn together. A beautifully written narrative that explores the blurred boundaries of good and evil in a closed Shaker community and the men and women of the 'world' outside.


Once a welcoming place, now, like stink round pigs, her family's
farm echoed only the poor, dirty lives of those it sheltered. The
house her Grandfather Briggs left behind had long passed into another world.
