Publisher's Description

Harriet Tubman was born a slave on a Maryland plantation in the 1800's. She trusts in God, but her faith is tested at every turn. Should she obey her masters or listen to her conscience? This story from Harriet's childhood is a record of courage. Even more, it's the story of God's faithfulness as He prepares her for her adult calling to lead more than 300 people out of slavery through the Underground Railroad.

    Lawton does an outstanding job of putting the reader right in the Quarter house for slaves on a plantation in Maryland with the young Harriet Tubman, her family and close friends. The reader anguishes with Harriet every time her master whips her. We pull for her to return to her family every time she is hired out to other slave owners. We rejoice with her when God answers her simple yet profound prayers. And we are challenged when a young girl asks God for the courage it takes to run for freedom.I knew very little about Harriet Tubman before reading Lawtons book. Now Ill never forget her.

    This book is terrific. I got it to give to someone much younger than I, but decided to read it myself first to make sure it was age-appropriate. I couldn't put it down. It makes the horrors of slavery so real.The faith the slaves held through it all is inspiring.And it brings a historical figure - Harriet Tubman - to life.
