    One thought on “Quaker Testimony”

    1. I usually don't like overly religious tones in my fiction, but this book is different. It incorporates the religion and faith of its characters without becoming preachy. I have Quaker ancestry so this book was very interesting and relevant to me. The mystery was very interesting and it had characters I cared about. I will definitely read another book by this author.

    2. I wanted to like this book, but didn't . The protagonist was too perfectionistic for me and I didn't get an authentic sense of the Friends' spirituality, just a sense of this meeting's politics. The plot was interesting, but I agree. It seemed forced.

    3. With a couple's home about to be repossessed, Quaker and Meeting Clerk Elizabeth Elliot comes to offer support only to find the woman's murdered body. Even Elizabeth is a suspect as she works to find out who among the non-violent Quakers might be a murderer. I really love the "Elizabeth Elliot" cozy mystery series. Senior citizen Elizabeth is a likable character and I am fascinated by the simple Quaker religion!

    4. Elizabeth Elliot is a widow and Clerk of the local Quaker meeting, handling congregational daily activities and acting as leader for the community. On one day she heads for the house of a couple who are about to be evicted because their house was siezed by the IRS due to non-payment of taxes, taxes they refused to pay because they believed that it was against their principles to pay for war. What she finds when she gets there is Hope Laughton in a pool of her own blood. In order to clear herself [...]

    5. This is a pretty standard detective novel. I liked the setting but I don't think that I like the detective Elizabeth Elliot. She is a little too self-righteous for me. I bet that I would have liked this book more if it was written in the first person. That way, the main character's self-righteousness could have become endearing instead of annoying.

    6. Read this a while ago, but as I get rid of the book, I want to remember that I read it. (Approximating when I read it.) Something ironic about the cover: a gun under the word "Quaker."I liked it from someone who admires the Friends.

    7. So I have read a bunch of Quaker books this year. this one was fun because the main characters were war tax resisters. I loved the way in which she brings a dialog about the pros and cons of war tax resistance into the story.

    8. Very good. Elizabeth Elliott's spiritual journey is engaging; the mystery was somewhat more complex than the previous ones, too - or maybe I was just more focused on the protagonist than on the plot…. I suspect some folks might find these books dull, but they speak to me.

    9. I learned a little about Quaker faith and practice in this murder mystery. The topical debate over evasion of war taxes is discussed, reviewing both sides. The heroine is a likeable 67-year-old Quaker Clerk who also stars in other novels I'll probably check out.

    10. Irene Allen has written an excellent mystery novel. I enjoyed her writing style. I found the book easy to follow, deeply engaging and very well written. I bonded with the main character. I look forward to reading her other mysteries.

    11. I actually liked this book but there were aspects of the religiosity of the main character that came off a bit forced. I would be interested in reading other books in the series to see how that continues and if her voice improves

    12. Fun idea, quick and pleasant read lasted long enough to make it through a couple doctor office waits, but not much more.

    13. This is a pretty drab book with just enough twist to make me finish it. I doubt I read more in the series.

    14. Elizabeth discovers the body of a young mother when she arrives to support her in a protest against the IRS.This is a readable series, but not one you won't forget.

    15. I really wanted to like this, because I'm a Quaker, but I was not thrilled. The protagonist was joyless! I think I'll pass it along to Goodwill.

    16. Was ok but the focus on Quaker peace testimony, particularly withholding taxes from government, didn't blend in well with the mystery aspect of the book. Seemed forced.

    17. You have to not like this genre, to not like this author. I love the wisdom that she shares (some have called her preachy) while spinning around a good mystery. Made me want more.

    18. I read an earlier book in the series, don't remember it being as preachy as this one. Very judgmental main character
