The Secret to Freedom

Review

by Suite 101



"This breathtaking book with a freedom quilt theme shifts back and forth between the present and bygone days, prior to the Civil War. As The Secret to Freedom opens, a young girl sits listening to Great Aunt Lucy tell slave stories that occurred prior to the Civil War. In one story about the past, Lucy learns through her brother, Albert, about the Underground Railroad.... A variety of quilt patterns appear on the back cover of the book that add a magical quality to the book."
