Cobbs' narrative style is both immediate and engaging. I appreciate how she focuses on Harriet Tubman's embodied experience to demonstrate Harriet's struggles to navigate her identity as both Moses - a public figure of resistance on the Underground Railroad - and as woman coming to grips with a betrayal in her marriage and the unfathomably painful situation of family separation. Harriet's faith and strength come through in the painstaking decisions she makes to pursue justice and freedom in the face of the atrocities of enslavement. I'm eager to read more about this remarkable heroine.
