OMGOSH!! I absolutely loved this story of a young Quaker girl named Honor Bright who journeys from England to Ohio to start her life anew. I was enthralled by this story and it's characters. Tracy Chevalier captured the voices of The Old South with the hope of the runaway slaves Honor encounters seeking freedom, to Honor Bright's inner turmoil learning the ways of a new country she does not understand. It was very descriptive and heartfelt. This one earns a place among my Favorites List!
