Read full description of the books:



Redfield Farm explores the paradox between peoples' professed beliefs and their actions. The main characters, Ann and Jesse Redfield,brother and sister, are birthright Quakers living in a small Quaker enclave in Bedford County, PA. When Jesse becomes a conductor on the Underground Railroad, Ann enlists as his trusted lieutenant. Together they lie, sneak, masquerade and defy their way past would-be enforcers of the hated Fugitive Slave Law. Their dedication to the cause inevitably leads to complicated relationships with their fellow Quakers, pro-slavery neighbors and the fugitives themselves. Quakers are non-violent yet Ann and Jesse find themselves confronted with violence at every turn. Ann Redfield's strength is derived from her faith and her determination to live her life as testament to the true meaning of Quaker beliefs. Redfield Farm is a tale of compassion, dedication and love steeped in the details of another time but resonant with implications for today's world.

Read information about the author

Ebook Redfield Farm read Online! Judith Redline Coopey, born in Altoona, PA holds degrees from the Pennsylvania State University and Arizona State University. A passion for history inherited from her father drives her writing and a love for Pennsylvania sustains it. Her first book, Redfield Farm was the story of the Underground Railroad in Bedford County, Pennsylvania. The second, Waterproof, tells how the 1889 Johnstown Flood nearly destroyed a whole city and one young woman’s life. Looking For Jane is a quest for love and family in the 1890s brought to life through the eyes of Nell, a young girl convinced that Calamity Jane is her mother. Her most recent work, The Furnace: Volume One of the Juniata Iron Trilogy, is set on an iron plantation near where she grew up and tells the story of an ill conceived marriage of convenience as it plays out over a lifetime. As a teacher, writer and student of history, Ms Coopey finds her inspiration in the rich history of her native state and in stories of the lives of those who have gone before.
