Publisher's Description

In a divided town during a dangerous era, whocan be trusted? Liberty, Indiana, is home to a stop on the Underground Railroad operated by Anna Brent and her father, covert abolitionists who harbor runaway slaves traveling toward freedom. The Brents must be very careful; anyone caught aiding runaways is subject to imprisonment under the Fugitive Slave Act of 1850. So when Anna begins to write columns denouncing slavery in the local newspaper, she must adopt a pen name. Even the newspaper?'s editor, Daniel Stanton, does not know the author?'s true identity. Daniel takes a risk publishing the columns his job, his newspaper, and his very life might be in danger. When Anna?'s work on the Underground Railroad is threatened, can she turn to Daniel, a man she barely knows, to ensure the safety of the slaves so dear to her? Will she and Daniel be willing to risk everything for their beliefs including their personal liberty?

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 Dobson’s 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

    This is an excellent story set in 1850, Liberty, Indiana. I had never read a book set around the Underground Railroad, so not only was I entertained by the story, I also learned quite a bit of the history surrounding the Fugitive Slave Act of 1950, abolitionists, and runaway slaves. Melanie Dobson is an incredibly talented writer, and I was drawn into the story from page one. There was a wonderful combination of faith, tension, and romance that kept my interest to the very last page. I look forward to reading more of her books in the future, and I highly recommend this book!

    This was the first book of Melanie's that i've ever read. I bought it because it was based out of Liberty IN. My husband and I volunteer at a railroad that was laid down on the tow path of the Whitewater Valley Canal. So this story hit home with me from the start. We go past the court hours where Anna was jailed. I drive through the forests that any runaway slave would have walked through. The fact that Melanie stayed in the area to research the facts is exceptional. This book has started an email relationship with Melanie and my husband and I helped to answer any questions on the trains for her next Love finds You book. Totally wonderful author and her books pull you in to where you can't put them down.

    Love finds you in Liberty, Indiana is a historical romance about Anna Brent, who, along with her dad, operates a station on the underground railroad. In public she occasionally has to speak pro-slavery in order to hide her identity. Daniel Stanton, on the other hand, speaks out against slavery. The two clearly do not get along until they are forced to work together.I liked this story. The romance was a bit formulaic and the story predictable; however I enjoyed the history and the speculation involved.The secondary characters were wonderful: Daniel's sister Esther and her husband Joseph, housekeepers Charlotte and Greta, and the heartwrenching tales of the runaways.Read more at http://inspiredbyfiction.blogspot.com

    This is a wonderfully written book. Ms. Dobson has told a touching, and very informative story about a time in our country's history that needs to be know. As someone who once lived in Liberty, Indiana I was impressed how well Ms. Dobson researched the area and it's history. Excellent job and talent at story telling makes an excellent read. I highly recommend this Book
