Curious about fiction that features Quakers, either as main characters or minor characters.

Does anyone recommend - or not recommend - any in particular?

I'm in the middle of one now that somebody passed on to me because it had Quakers in it. Probably best not to comment on it until I finish it. The title is "In Every Heartbeat" by Kim Vogel Sawyer, a historical novel, set in Missouri in 1914.

The Iron Bridge by David E. Morse

Glad to see this one mention, in the previous post.  Science fiction. Mentioned often in the non-fiction work Quakernomics.

This Youtube about the bridge mentions Quakers (that Darby was one) when pointing out the illusion of a carved face in the bridge. The narrator assures us this would not be of Darby, contrary to local lore, because he was Quaker and would have regarded such a detail as too frivolous and vain.
