Loved the book. Very sweet, excellent insight into a widely misunderstood religious movement. I wish there were sequels about Abel Church and Sarah Barker!
I read, "The Gift of Sarah Barker," written by Jane Yolen. This book is about is about this young girl and this young boy. The young girl is named Sister Sarah and the boy is named Brother Able. They both live in the same Shaker community where it is a sin to even talk to the opposite gender. If you are not a Mother or Father of the community. Somehow through it all Sarah and Able find love. They must keep it a secret though or they will be thrown out of their community. If I were to rate this book on a scale from one to five. I would give it a four. Thats because there were alot of attention grabbers. It was defanatally a girls book. The reason why I think that this book is a girls book is because it's sappy, mushy, and a love story kind of book. It reminds me of "Romeo and Juliet" by Willianm Shakespear. I would love ot read this book agian...
The Gift of Sarah Barker by Jane Yolen was a really good book. It teaches you a lot about the culture of the Shakers. I liked how the author gave so much information on a culture that is now almost gone, and put in a good story to make it intriguing. Sarah and Abel fall in love, in a Shaker community where it is forbidden, when Sarah forgets her stockings on Holy Hill and Abel finds them. Of course they need to be returned, and so they meet together at night. They continue sneaking out to meet each other and their love continues to grow. It is hard to live such a terrible secret and they had to find a way to get away. I found myself rooting for Sarah and Abel and wanting to not put it down once I started reading it. This book should be read by many others.
It’s a crime that this beautiful, Newbery-worthy book by Jane Yolen is out of print. The Shakers were an obscure religious sect, who lived mainly in New England in the late 1800’s and early 1900s, that has all but died out due to its rigid separation of the sexes and rejection of earthly marriage. The Sarah Barker of the title is trapped in a world in which she does not fit, facing a circumscribed future that limits her soul. And yes, she finds love, but she finds that love is not enough to save you. Girls who are drawn to stories like “The Diary of Anne Frank” will find here a positive and redemptive message which was quite powerful for me personally. Buy this book and it may just stay with you forever.
Jane Yolen excels at getting to the heart of youthful quandaries. When her mother, guilt-ridden and nearly psychopathic, flees with Sarah to a Shaker commune, Sarah does her best to embrace the Shaker ethos. . . but deep in her heart, she yearns for something more than the absolute separation of males and females, something more than the required platonic relationships demanded by the Shaker traditions. Plagued by guilt for wanting more than mere friendship, knowing that she can never love a male and remain a Shaker, she faces a decision that will change her entire life, that could doom her to perdition, that will shatter her world. Yolen demonstrates the agony of such a choice and of its consequences without "prettifying." Short but powerful, and uplifting even through Sarah's pain.

I thought that this book was easy to read and enjoyable. It had caught my interest and it also gave me alittle knowledge of how most of the people adapted in the new developing land now called the United States of America. I think everyone should have a chance to read this book because it shows a lot of different additudes and customs when first settling in this land, that has now changed throughout the years.
When I started reading this book I thought, "Oh, this has to be interesting, she has such character and spunk in her." Unfortunately I was wrong. Details are good, in fact very good, but there is a saying less is more, and this was not the case in this book. I waited for at least 3 pages of details just to get to dialogue. Then it starts to get confusing, the Shaker religion is not well explained, and for the first part of the book, I was like, excuse my language," What the hell are they talking about?!"

This book was also very unrealistic. I understand the whole love at first sight concept, but I mean, come on, after a few glimpses of her, and talking to her once, he falls deeply in love with her? Such BP (bull poop)! All in all, I did not enjoy this book, I thought it was beyond unbelievable, and a little too wordy when it comes to describe the background.
I found this book very exciting and entertaining, allthough a bit heavy at times. It is appropriate for (and can be understood best at)ages 13-14, I would say. Also,it would be best to research the Shaker religion (which the book is about) before reading it. It makes more sense that way.
