by Tracy Chevalier
Tracy Chevalier ,the author of Girl with the Pearl Earring and Virgin Blue,is a wonderful author. Since Historical Fiction is one of my favorite genres,this book was a great read. Honor Bright is an English Quaker who leaves her home to travel to Ohio in 1850. Alone and isolated,she feels no attachment to her new home. As her life changes and she tries to adapt,she is drawn into the activities of the Underground Railroad. The individuals she encounters along the way begin to help Honor see what her new life could be. This book was a fascinating insight into slavery and the Underground Railroad.
