Comfort and Mrs. Howard are also traveling down the Ohio River, speaking out against slavery at the many riverside towns. May owes Mrs. Howard a debt she cannot repay, and Mrs. Howard uses the opportunity to enlist May in her network of shadowy characters who ferry babies given up by their slave mothers across the river to freedom. Lying has never come easy to May, but now she is compelled to break the law, deceive all her newfound friends, and deflect the rising suspicions of Dr. Early, who captures runaways and sells them back to their Southern masters.

Really enjoyed it
I was given this book in exchange for an honest review. I loved the Story line and the idea about it. Grew to love or hate the characters. Just thought the climax came late in the book and didn’t last as long as I’d like. Would have like to if had more saving or the Slaves or another book. I was glued to the book the whole time. Read in about 2 days. Well written the descriptions where believable at times I felt I too was on the boat. If you like historical fiction you’ll like this book.

Excellent historical fiction audiobook
Great character development and beautiful descriptions. I felt as if I could breathe the air she described and feel the temperature. I was swept into the story right away. The author does a fantastic job with her words of bringing this story to life. The narrator is a perfect conveyer of the characters. She uses different voices for each person.
