In the early 1850’s Quaker sisters, Honor and Grace Bright, set sail for America. They begin a journey to Ohio where Grace will marry Adam Cox, a Quaker, who has settled near Oberlin, Ohio. In Pennsylvania Grace contacts Yellow Fever and dies. With the help of strangers, Honor continues to Ohio. Her arrival, instead of her sister Grace, is an unwelcome surprise to the small Cox household. While Honor struggles to adapt to the Quaker Community in America, she, unwittingly, becomes involved with the Underground Railroad. Once again, Tracy Chevalier has written an informative and compelling historical novel.
