A Bonded Friendship by Gretchel Hathaway

This is the story of a truly epic friendship between two men who, in different ways, were giants of courage and commitment. Moses Viney escaped the bonds of slavery and was embraced, literally and figuratively, by the long-serving president of Union College, Eliphalet Nott. As this fascinating account (more history than fiction) makes clear, both men supported one another through crisis, physical pain, and personal loss. Their "bonded friendship" continues to be celebrated in New York and particularly in the Union College community as an enduring example of how differences in race, social background, and professional status fade to the vanishing point in the presence of mutual trust, caring, and respect.

This is an inspiring story about the friendship between two men in the 1800s. Moses Viney, a runaway slave, and Dr. Eliphalet Nott, the Union College president, had such a unique relationship and I'm glad that Dr. Hathaway decided to tell their story. It is well written and I was truly moved by the ending.
