Oh Freedom: A Novel of the Underground Railroad
"The heart of Oh Freedom is the evolving friendship between Sarah Meader, a 27 year old white, Quaker, Dover abolitionist, and Letty/Eliza Jane, a 15 year old fugitive slave. The story’s action takes place in Charleston, South Carolina, Washington D.C., seacoast and interior New England, and Canada. In addition to antislavery fervor and the government’s attempts to suppress it, the novel accurately depicts the status of women in mid-19th century America, Quaker faith and lifestyle, and the many other carefully researched details required for historical authenticity." 399 pages, softcover.
