The last runaway
Media class: Book
Prescott Reading Group Review.This book was very well received by all who read it. One comment regarding wanting more depth, however, other readers thought it packed with information. Members thought it would transfer to the cinema.
Addictively compelling The Times A joy to read Maggie OFarrell Honor Bright is a sheltered Quaker who has rarely ventured out of 1850s Dorset when she impulsively emigrates to America. Opposed to the slavery that defines and divides the country, she finds her principles tested to the limit when a runaway slave appears at the farm of her new family. In this tough, unsentimental place, where whisky bottles sit alongside quilts, Honor befriends two spirited women who will teach her how to turn ideas into action.
