Lee Warren5 Stars Out Of 5March 31, 2003Lee WarrenLawton 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.
Emily Montfort5 Stars Out Of 5May 24, 2002Emily MontfortThis 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.
