Currently, I am reading a non-fictional account of a woman trying to rescue her children from the Shakers. This account takes place in the 1800s and "paints" a fascinating look at Shaker life. The main character, Eunice, though cheated and manipulated by Shaker society, did not deny the beauty of their sprawling farms. Here is a small part of the Shaker's beautiful, sprawling landscape. The Great Divorce, by Ilyon Woo tells a very unique story about a very unique society.
