    a fantastic historical thriller

    In 1850 Liberty, Indiana Anna Brent and her father are conductors on the Underground Railroad helping runaway slaves escape to freedom. She and her dad know they are breaking the law, but their Quaker beliefs insist on assisting those suppressed.

    Newspaper editor Daniel Stanton opposes slavery and says so all the time in his paper with strong opinions. At the same he overtly and she covertly work to end slavery, someone apparently has uncovered Anna's secret work. Her only hope to stay out of jail or perhaps even something much worse rests with Daniel whom she trusts with her heart and soul with her secret and her life.

    The setting of escaped slaves and Indiana Quakers as Conductors on the Underground Railroad make for a fantastic historical thriller with the romance well written but intended to support the heroic efforts of those risking their lives especially the lead couple. Anna and Daniel are a wonderful pairing as each faces danger with courage. Fans who relish a profound vivid look back at a period of brave people willing to die for basic human rights will enjoy LOVE FINDS YOU IN LIBERTY, INDIANA.

    Bravo! This is one compelling story!

    Melanie Dobson is a diverse and talented author. It's crazy, but I love every book she's written that is on the market. Every single one. Love Finds you in Liberty, Indiana is no exception. It's interesting, compelling, emotional and gripping. I didn't want to do anything except read this book. I finished it a few days ago but didn't have time to post a review until now. The characters are strong and yet realistic. The attraction makes sense and goes deeper than just a pretty face. The element of danger will leave you a bit breathless. Every time those slave hunters showed up I swear I held my breath! And not only is the story compelling, but it was well-researched.

    I would highly recommend this to parents who homeschool their teens. The story is clean and wouldn't make your grandma blush, but it's also jam packed with content that will teach youth to have greater compassion on people in less fortunate situations. It also teaches the value in self-sacrifice and loving God and people enough to sacrifice your own freedom so that others may benefit and experience it as well. I even learned about about the Fugitive Slave Act and how much it negatively affected everyone at the time. It reminded me so much of the Holocaust. And in reality, it was America's Holocaust. The reader can easily see how this issue propelled the country into the Civil War.

    Bottom line, this was an awesome story and I totally loved it. While not edgy, it was top notch writing and compelling enough to keep me reading. I cared about the characters...every last one of them.

    Compelling Historical Novel

    Melanie Dobson's descriptive writing pulled me into Love Finds You in Liberty, Indiana before I turned the first page. I jumped into the heart of Anna Brent, a young Quaker woman, and her inward struggle to follow God's call to love in all circumstances versus obeying the laws that govern her divided country. The suspense is palpable as the courageous heroine chooses to put her life and freedom at risk and run a station on the underground railroad. While she quietly helps runaway slaves escape to freedom, the man who unexpectedly captured her heart stands on the verge of discovering her carefully hidden secret life. Can he be trusted with her secret or will his discovery be the end of her life as she knows it?

    Dobson masterfully weaves suspense, history and romance into a page-turning thriller. I found myself re-living the characters lives as I tripped through my daily life and mulling over their dilemma to choose obedience to God above all else. The questions of faith spurred spiritual wrestling and growth in my life. You will not be disappointed.

    I give ital a highly recommeded

    I did not realize it until I started to read the ebook that I had purchased it about three years ago and read it then. It was very good and I keep looking to see if I can find any new book by the author. I just wish that I had not purchased it twice.

    Captivating!

    So I could not put this book down. I read it one night start to finish (it was a late night for me) and had no idea how it was going to end. It is a very intriguing story about the underground railroad, and a great glimpse of what it would have been like to be living in that era. Loved the historical aspect and the example of living your life as a sacrifice for others, standing for what you know is right.
    Highly recommend!
