Hope Unshackled is the continuing story of Olivia Benjamin, now widowed, who has moved into the dark world of protecting fugitive slaves from capture. As a northerner, I was appalled at Connecticut’s part in persecuting slaves and mentally cheered on Oliva and all those brave families who risked arrest and harm by harboring slaves in their homes via the Underground Railroad. For me, this story was an eye-opener filled with a mix of gripping suspense, hope, and shame for all those who felt persecuting runaways was the right thing to do. Whether or not you are a history buff, you will find this tale a page turner.
