Covert abolitionists Anna Brent and her father operate a stop on the Underground Railroad in Liberty, Indiana. Even newspaper editor Daniel Stanton doesn't know she's the author of an anonymous column denouncing slavery. But when the Brents' work is threatened, can Anna trust Daniel to risk everything---including his freedom---to help them?
Love Finds You in Liberty, Indiana by Melanie Dobson is an historical romance set in 1850, during the peak of the Underground Railroad, ten years before the start of the American Civil War. Anna Brent is a Quaker abolitionist who runs a hiding station on the Underground Railroad with her father. Anna is a strong woman, willing to sacrifice what she wants for what she knows is right. She wishes to marry, but feels that her work on the Underground Railroad is too important and too dangerous to allow her to do so.
Nonetheless, Anna is interested in Daniel Stanton, the new editor of the newspaper. His outspokenness about abolition makes her wary of being associated with him for fear people would guess she is harboring slaves. Her friendship with his sister brings her into a closer acquaintance with Daniel. When her work is endangered, she is forced to trust him.
Love Finds You in Liberty, Indiana is paced well. It moves fluidly and easily, without leaving the reader breathless. Melanie Dobsons research into Quakers and the Underground Railroad is historically sound. She handles delicate subjects (such as the pregnancy of a minor character) very well. She integrates faith in God and scriptural principles into her story and the lives of her characters. Her characters are adequate for the story, although they act in somewhat exaggerated ways at times. The story itself is fun and intriguing.
Overall, I enjoyed this book. I would recommend it for people who want a relaxing narrative, or those who are interested in romance and this period of history. Jessica Becker, www.ChristianBookPreviews.com
