The pages turn over like rocks on the beach, disclosing multiple treasures underneath, declared Horn Book in a starred review of Janet Hickman's Jericho. Now the critically acclaimed author tells the story of Susannah, a teenage girl who has been brought by her widowed father to live in a Shaker settlement in Ohio in 1810. In this austere, orderly community where few things other than religious devotion and duty are tolerated, Susannah grieves for her mother and longs for the simple freedoms of the outside world. Her tale is one of loyalty and defiance, compassion and bravery and will strike a resonant chord in the hearts and minds of readers.
