North By Night
A Story Of The Underground Railroad
BY KATHERINE AYRES
Set in 1851 rural Ohio, sixteen-year-old Lucinda Spencer is about to see her life alter dramatically through her Presbyterian family's collaboration with the Underground Railroad. In letters and diary entries, she tells how a snatched conversation with young Quaker Jeremiah Strong draws her into taking care of an entire family of escaped slaves, one about to give birth. Away from home for the first time in her life, estranged from her suitor, confronting dangers and tragedies she'd barely imagined, she discovers her love for Jeremiah and a future that's broader than an early village wedding. Ages 10 and up.
