This is a very interesting historical novel about the Quakers and the Underground Railroad. I have to admit I'm not quite finished with it, but I am finding the culture of the Quakers during this period fascinating. I'm hoping to find some downtime this weekend to finish the book and I can update this post more then.
There were a lot of things I learned even in reading the forward. I love books that have been written by authors who do a lot of investigative work before they start!

ABOUT THE BOOK
When Quakers Flora Saferight and Bruce Millikan embark on the Underground Railroad, they agree to put their differences aside to save the lives of a pregnant slave couple. With only her mother’s quilt as a secret guide, the foursome follows the stitches through unknown treachery.
As they embark on their perilous journey, they hope and pray that their path is one of promise where love sustains them, courage builds faith, and forgiveness leads to freedom.
