It’s May 1863. Outgeneraled and outgunned, a demoralized Union Army has pulled back with massive losses at the Battle of Chancellorsville. Fort Sumter, hated symbol of the Rebellion, taunts the American navy with its artillery and underwater mines. In Beaufort, SC, one very special woman, code named Moses, is hatching a spectacular plan. Hunted by Confederates, revered by slaves, Harriet Tubman plots an expedition behind enemy lines to liberate hundreds of bondsmen and recruit them as soldiers.

I am thoroughly enjoying this book and cannot stop listening. Harriet Tubman is my heroine, as she is many others. To have an inside view into her life is wonderful. I did not know much about this time in her life, so I am enjoying learning about every minute. Heidi Franklin (the narrator) does a great job with the different characters and her voice is wonderful. I have read some of the reviews -not liking the romance-although, yes, unnecessary, Elizabeth Cobbs handles it well and it does not dominate the story. Harriet is strong and keeps her focus. For anyone who loves Harriet Tubman and learning more about her life this is a must read/must listen!
