    One thought on “Quaker Witness”

    1. Easy to read; it was OK, but not a good as I remember Quaker Silence to be. I won't be reading the others in the series.

    2. Not as good as Quaker Silence, but still very good.Janet Stevens is a PhD student at Harvard, studying paleontology. She is sexually harassed by her advisor, Paul Chadwick. Enter Elizabeth Elliot, detective and Friend. Some of the explanations of how he died left me cross-eyed . . . I didn't find the religious blurbs at the beginning of the chapters as comforting . . . and I didn't like the ways Elizabeth ignored the Quaker "rules' when it suited her-- the author could have found another way. Ha [...]

    3. Sexual harrassment, a lesson in Quaker culture and beliefs, romance, pride, forgiveness, ethics in higher education, general decency to human beings and a bunch of other stuff. This book had a lot more to it then I suspected. I have to say I liked it. A little suspense, but nothing too creepy.It also surprised me with some swear words. It is hard to see that coming when you are reading a book about a religious old woman and each chapter starts out with a scripture from the prophet Isiah! Borrow [...]

    4. A young women comes to Meetinghouse Clerk Elizabeth Elliot for help after she is sexually harassed by her academic advisor. When the advisor is found dead the girl finds herself the number one suspect. Believing in her innocence, Elizabeth must find out who really killed the advisor. Author Irene Allen wrote so few of these "Elizabeth Elliot" cozy mystery series but they are real gems. Especially if you, like me find the Quaker life fascinating.

    5. Part of a series of whodunnits, but I didn't like it. The protagonist is a senior citizen Quaker. Way too much moralizing, which was boring -- even though I believe in the same values. No interesting characters.

    6. Loved this one, too, and will keep looking for the rest of the series. Irene Allen has a great way of teaching you about another culture while you skip along with the mystery. WEll worth a read, easy and enjoyable.

    7. The sleuth of this mystery is a widow in her sixties, clerk of Cambridge Friends Meeting. It is very good at portraying a Quaker way of life and of seeing the world. I really liked the ending especially. Sarah Dowell owns this book if you would like to read it.

    8. Harvard grad student wants to press a sexual harrassment complaint against her advisor, but someone kills his instead.

    9. This book is a little over the top in its portrayal of Quakers. As a scientist, I primarily enjoyed the portrayal of scientific misconduct.

    10. Very readable mystery. It takes place at a Harvard Univ. science building, and I was glad to be able to follow the story in spite of the scientific nature of the mystery.

    11. As a Quaker I enjoyed this book. I also liked that it was not extremely violent and portrayed women's struggles in academia at the end of the 20th century.
