Set in 1863, Harriet Tubman's adventures as a runaway slave who joins the Underground Railroad and later becomes a spy for the Union Army, freeing hundreds of slaves during plantation raids is chronicled in The Tubman Command.

Because there isn't very much recorded information about Harriet, after extensive research on the author's part, most of this account is speculation. While this is obviously fiction, I found it read very much like a non-fiction (biography) type of work which unfortunately did not hold my interest, though I do believe Harriet was a brave, strong and courageous woman!

Thank you to the publisher for the advanced copy won in a BookishFirst giveaway; all opinions are my own.
