”an ailing gentleman seeking medical treatment in Philadelphia. The Vanishing Woman is based on a true story”one of the boldest escapes in American history. William and Ellen knew they could never have children until they were free, so they embarked on the greatest of escapes. Their incredible story riveted a nation, and it put the Fugitive Slave Act to the test, bringing attention to their plight all the way to the White House. The ultimate irony: The invisible woman became one of the most visible symbols of freedom in nineteenth-century America.

If you like historical fiction, then this book could be perfect for you. It is based on the true story of how a woman and her husband escape slavery. Some portions are fictionalized, but it is based on a true story. It is very suspenseful. I often found myself wondering if it would end up okay! I would definitely recommend this book.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
