From Library Staff

A heroine with magical foresight and storytelling which connects to contemporary relevance and redemptive hope are reasons why I’m a solid fan of James McBride! Harriet Tubman, Frederick Douglas and communication on the Underground Railroad are also vibrantly portrayed. Published in February 2008
