"Escaped slaves, free blacks, slave-catchers and plantation owners weave a tangled web of intrigue and adventure in bestselling memoirist (The Color of Water) McBride's intricately constructed and impressive second novel, set in pre - Civil War Maryland." (Publishers Weekly)
I couldn't stop listening to this book! Leslie Uggams does such a great job narrating, that I felt I was right there in the story. The music was a good choice also. I was a little disappointed in the way it ended, but all-in-all it is a thoughtful, well written and well read book.
I am a mail carrier & I go through a book in one day
Mcbride has done it again, this story is thought provoking & historical with fictional truth involved. This is my second book of his I listened to and I enjoyed it greatly.
