Publishers Weekly

Taylor (Highland Blessings) continues the publisher’s Quilts of Love series with a middling pre–Civil War tale of romance mildly seasoned with adventure. Flora Saferight and Bruce Millikan are North Carolina Quakers brought together to guide to freedom a pregnant escaped slave and her husband. Flora is a midwife, so she is drawn into the plan even though Bruce was her childhood tormenter and she remains mistrustful of him, not knowing that Bruce has become a secret admirer now that both have grown to maturity. The two bicker and face danger together even as the misunderstandings, and the attraction between them, grow. The author’s portrait of mid-19th-century Quakers is unconvincing (they didn’t use the terms “pastor” or “church” during the period) and dialogue can sound anachronistically contemporary (“‘Yeah, all the time thee called her Beaver Face sort of branded her among all the kids’”). She has some talent for developing romantic tension that might work better in a contemporary setting. (Jan.) 2012 Reed Business Information

The thrilling novel, Path of Freedom by Jennifer Hudson Taylor, is filled with suspense, love, history, and developing relationships with God. The main character, Flora Saferight, is violently thrown into the dangerous and turbulent world of the Underground Railroad as she is forced to work with a childhood enemy in order to smuggle a pregnant slave and her husband into the North and into freedom. Throughout her journey, Flora finds herself wrestling with conflicting emotions of love and hate in the physical world, and confusion in the spiritual one as she struggles in her relationship with Christ, unsure of what His plan is for her. Should she obey man's laws or should she follow the teachings of Christ?

This book was able to recreate the Quaker culture and beliefs very accurately, including manner of speech, dress, and social and religious practices. Flora finds herself romantically attracted to Bruce Millikan, but both realize that their mission to free slaves must have precedence over any personal agendas. Flora had made plans to study to be a midwife, but then Pastor John assigns her to work as Millikan's helper in freeing Jim and Marta, who are being relentlessly pursued by a bounty hunter hired by their former master.

Galatians 3:28 is the theme verse for this novel, in its emphasis that in God's eyes there are no free or slave people, only brothers and sisters in Christ.

Stubborn and focused, Flora is determined to show the world that she can be competent and resourceful. However, in the process, she becomes confused at times, thus sometimes being kind and affectionate toward Bruce and other times obstinate and sour toward him. Helping to be a buffer is Irene, Flora's sister, who helps them on the journey through the Underground Railroad. With aspects of fleeing pursuers, hiding in cellars, seeking needed food, and avoiding army patrols, this story is adventurous and tension filled. Anyone who wishes to get a perspective of this era of American history or to examine how to balance civil and religious laws will enjoy this book. - Karli Rae Melder, www.ChristianBookPreviews.com
