While I tend to like Tracy Chevalier‘s older books better, this was still a good read about a young Quaker woman in the 1800‘s who moves from England to the U.S. and has to adapt to a new country with new ideals. Unwittingly, she also finds herself thrust in the midst of the Underground Railroad.

Listy photo dump Post #1. Although I haven‘t been posting (at all, really) i have been reading (not much). Don‘t judge, please (teaching is exhausting).
I enjoyed this book- history, new beginnings, strong women. Right up my alley.

A friend gave this to me because of the underlying quilts in the story. But, I loved it all the way through. An English woman learns how to continue as an American with all our complexities after becoming involved in the Underground Railroad

I liked it. It enjoyed the letters in between the chapters. I was convinced I knew how it would end but turns out I didn't. I like it when that happens!

I've made a fair dent in this today, it's too muggy outside so reading seemed like the best option. I'm liking this book, I'm especially liking the character of Belle, hoping she appears more.

I don't know how long this has been on my shelf but I thought it was about time I read it. I enjoyed the other Chevalier novel I read so I'm hopeful. Plus I love anything set in the past!

Waiting out a minor head injury: always gonna be not a lot of fun; HOWEVER, add some cats and an interesting book and it's not too terrible.

⭐️⭐️⭐️: Honor Bright leaves England for a new life in 1850 America, amidst the battle of slavery. This book was good, but didn't go too far below the surface for me. I enjoyed the book but found it too light given the topic. #Chevalier #HistoricalFiction

First 5-star book of 2017 and what a start! Love triangle and adventurous slavery times. OMG, I'm so in love with this book! It just reminded me of the Invention of Wings bys Sue Monk Kidd, another 5-star and on the same storyline

I love the perspective Chevalier brings on the lives (and power) of women at various points in history. This story is set where I grew up- outside of Oberlin in rural Ohio. I grew up knowing that Oberlin had been active in the Underground Railroad. Great to read a story imagining it.

First book I read by this author. I loved it. It's a historic romance that I found interesting and believable without being silly & soppy. I learnt a lot about the southern US slave era and the choices people can make to improve the lives of others. Great read.
