Read full description of the books Redfield Farm:REDFIELD FARM explores the paradox between peoples' professed beliefs and their actions. The main characters are Quaker and live in a solidly Quaker community. Quakers are non-violent yet the actions of the two main characters will go to any lengths to help fugitive slaves escape. Quakers believe in equality, yet when a mixed-race child is born they turn their backs and are uncomfortable with the child. Quakers are pacifists yet two brothers go off to war to fight for their country. Ann Redfield's strength is derived from her Quaker faith, yet she is thrown out of the church for an act of love. She is steadfast in her determination to live her faith, not just profess it. Ann's life is testament to the true meaning of the Quaker teachings.REDFIELD FARM is thoroughly researched for accuracy. The author is a history professor and historical researcher.
Read information about the authorJudith 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.
