|Experience the underground railroad in 1850’s Ohio through the eyes of Honor Bright, a shy, clever Quaker quilt maker. Honor is a newly arrived immigrant, who lost her sister to yellow fever after a seasick crossing of the Atlantic Ocean. Hat maker, Belle, shelters Honor by giving her sewing work while she grieves for her sister. Here, she learns about slave hunters, those running the underground railroad, and the risks and potential consequences for those helping the slaves. Honor begins helping runaways, despite her husband’s warnings. Torn between her religious beliefs and the letter of the law, she finds living with her husband’s family nearly impossible. How does she live out her beliefs of opposing slavery and freedom for all God’s children?
