Publisher's Summary

Inspired by a true story, here is the riveting novel of a young slave girl's harrowing escape to freedom on the Underground Railroad.

The moment Ann Maria Weems was born, her freedom was stolen from her. Like her family and the other slaves on the farm, Ann works from sunup to sundown and obeys the orders of her master. Then one day, Ann's family - the only joy she knows - is gone. Just 12 years old, Ann is overcome by grief, struggling to get through each day. And her only hope of stealing back her freedom and finding her family lies in a perilous journey: the Underground Railroad.

One one of the best Narrated books I have listen to.

Based on a true story the author created characters that provided me with more understanding and enlightenment of the history of slavery and the Underground Railroad. I recommend this for adolescents as well as adults.

Stealing freedom!

Title says it all. Opens our eyes to the real horrors of slavery. The chaining of men and women, their treatment as less than dogs, and their incredible courage to outsmart those who enslaved them. This book has you cheering for Ann and her family and crying for those families separated and never seeing each other again. This book gives a true look as to what life must have been like as a slave. It’s sad - but shows hope.

VERY MUCH ENJOYED

I love reading stories of historical fiction or non fiction about our ppl. The story and performance kept me listening. These stories help you to see the complexity of the Underground Railroad and all the colorful ppl that helped along the way no matter their skin color.
