The Last Runaway

The Last Runaway by Tracy Chevalier has been chosen for our January 2015 selection. Rita Allen will facilitate this award-winning book.

This is a period novel, circa Ohio 1850. It describes the journey of English Quaker Honor Bright as she struggles with the conflicting beliefs of her new family and her own values with regard to helping individuals of the Underground Railroad. Chevalier’s descriptions are powerful, filled with color, drama, bravery and perseverance.
