Harriet Tubman was an amazing woman and inspirational for her inner strength, her leadership, her courage to face danger and death so that others could find freedom. I found this novel to be well-written, however, the pacing was too slow for me and seemed to drag too much. The writing is rich in detail and the sensory details placed me right into the scenes along with the characters. The horrors of slavery are more than brought to light in this novel and reminded me of the freedom I take for granted as well as those heroes and heroines that have sacrificed their own lives and freedoms for others.

If you enjoy historical fiction, I'd recommend giving this book a try. I know only a few facts about Harriet Tubman from history class, and this book seemed well-researched.
