It’s just a good book not much to say here.

I think that this story would be a perfect one to incorporate in a history/social sciences course. Telling the story of African-American slaves and their quest for freedom through the eyes of a young person would make the theme more appealing to young readers.

Ferris manages to strike a good balance between history and her imagination. Her prose is vivid, the characters strong, the narrative well constructed, and readers who are interested in further historical research will be rewarded with a satisfying real-life coda to the story. Ultimately, Ferris neatly sidesteps more somber themes in favor of her strong suit, romance this is a love story more than a slave narrative, a history or even a geology of the caves of Kentucky
