As It Is In Heaven
By Arlene Hutton
As It Is In Heaven is a powerful and compelling story about a religious community that is changed when a non-believer has an ecstatic experience. The 1830's Shaker society of Pleasant Hill, Ky., is one of routine and ordered ways. The arrival of Fanny upsets the harmony; the Sisters suspect her to be a "winter Shaker," one who suddenly converts when life gets too hard on the farm. Fanny sees angels in the meadow, and soon all the young women are receiving spiritual "gifts" of songs, drawings, ideas and giggles, which completely upsets the community.
