I really enjoyed learning about the abolitionist movement while following the story of Lidie and her travels and adventures. At times, it did seem that the next plot point was a bit too far away, but given the time period, that seemed to helped "transport" me back to a simpler, less harried time. I, also, listened to this while driving, but over several shorter trips and couldn't get wait to get back to the story every time I left it.
I was so captivated by the depth of the characters in this book, artfully read by Jenna Lamia, that I actually looked forward to plugging in my earphones and getting on the treadmill. I was sad to finish the book, but it was a very satisfying read. The background of the Civil Rights movement made the story more poignant and I found Lily's search for a mother to be engaging and hopeful. I will definitely keep my eyes open for another book by this author.
