If thy did I would give this book a solid 25 star rating For the cover art I would give thy a 5 star rating But I digress Tracy Chevalier's latest book examines the uakers' role in the Underground Railroad during the mid 1800s We see this time period through the eyes of one Honor Bright a recent emigrate from England Honor is a twenty year old who like most twenty somethings finds it is one thing to profess moral ideals and uite another to live by them Issues that vex Honor uakers are not allowed to lie or keep secrets BUT the success of the Underground Railroad relies on such prevarication How does thy uilt when the very material used to uilt comes off the backs of slaves?

    eBook academics20193.co ´ The Last Runaway MOBI ✓ The Last PDF or last ebok, runaway ebok, The Last pdf, The Last Runaway KindleThis novel was enjoyable enough However reading it gives one a sensation of floating atop the story nothing pulls a person in or attaches itself to the reader's emotions The story is just too light The first hundred pages are largely given over to uilting patterns and sewing techniues which is fine enough if one has a taste for such thorough narrations of domestiue intricacies; but a reader choosing this book based on the cover description would be disappointed It leaves one to believe that it is centred around the Underground Railroad leaves one to expect a drama of true trials and interpersonal struggles as no tale concerning such a matter could be or was otherwise especially to the people immediately concerned However excluding the last scene the collection of scarce small events involving black runaways throughout this novel most definately purposes as a side story and futher each event in and of itself also carries a feeling of bein
