They told him his best friend wasn't human. Robert's father assisted the Underground Railroad. His mother adamantly opposed abolition. His best friend was a black boy named William Henry. As a nation neared its boiling point, Robert found himself in his own painful conflict. The one thing he couldn't do was nothing at all. William Henry is a coming-of-age story about a 12-year-old boy--and an entire country--that comes face to face with the evils of society, even within the walls of the church. In the safety of an uplifting friendship, he discovers the hope of a brighter day.

Karen LangeKentuckyAge: 45-54Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5April 21, 2009Karen LangeKentuckyAge: 45-54Gender: femaleSet in Maryland prior to the Civil War, this coming of age tale of thirteen-year-old Robert Glover is packed with action, adventure, laughter, and tears. We join Robert and his family at their home in Elkton, Maryland, where his father, Charles, works as overseer on a Quaker farm. Mr. Heath, Charles employer, freed his slaves, and now pays them to work the land alongside Charles and Robert. Roberts mother Caroline hails from a prominent slave holding family in North Carolina, and loyalties are challenged when The Underground Railroad is nearly discovered in Roberts area.Many secrets are revealed the summer Robert turns thirteen, including the fact that Mr. Heath and Roberts father work with The Underground Railroad. William Henry, son of freed slaves that work for Mr. Heath, is Roberts best friend. Robert and William Henry grew up together, but until that summer, William Henry has a better idea than Robert of why skin color matters. Robert also meets his North Carolina relatives that year, which further clarifies his growing convictions concerning slavery. Will Robert step up and fill the shoes his Grandfather wants him to fill as sole heir of the North Carolina family plantation? Or will Robert join his father in the Underground Railroad?Cathy Gohlke paints an inspiring and realistic portrait of life just prior to the Civil War. Roberts story serves to richly illuminate the past while entertaining the reader. The books informative and entertaining value will appeal to ages 12-100. It would also be a wonderful teaching tool for those studying American history. This book is a marvelous testimony to the genre of historical fiction. In my opinion, this book is a winner!
