My rating: 5 of 5 stars
I went into this book not quite sure what to expect. Once into the book, I was quite delighted to see a different spin on time travel. Time travel seems to be the ‘popular’ thing in sci-fi right now and I was afraid I would be disappointed. I wasn’t. This isn’t just a book about time travel and the time travel that is described in this book isn’t your typical ‘mad scientist builds a time machine and goes back in time…..and so on.’
This is about a natural occurring time travel through these worm holes located in different areas throughout the country. When Harriet Tubman came through the hole, Leigh and her family face a whole new set of challenges. They needed to gain Harriet’s trust quickly and then explain to her what was happening. They also needed to convince her to go back to her time the following year after living free and seeing what the world is like now without slavery. That would be a hard sell!
The book did have a slower pace, but all in all I really enjoyed the read. The author shows us the world of slavery through Harriet Tubman’s eyes and there is quite the detail and history lesson found in this story.
I look forward to more from this author!
