'Completely charming' Imogen Hermes Gowar, author of The Mermaid
and Mrs Hancock In a nation divided by prejudice, everyone must
take a side. When young seamstress May Bedloe is left alone and
penniless on the shore of the Ohio, she finds work on the famous
floating theatre that plies its trade along the river. Her
creativity and needlework skills quickly become invaluable and she
settles in to life among the colourful troupe of actors. She finds
friends, and possibly the promise of more ... But cruising the
border between the Confederate South and the 'free' North is
fraught with danger. For the sake of a debt that must be repaid,
May is compelled to transport secret passengers, under cover of
darkness, across the river and on, along the underground railroad.
But as May's secrets become harder to keep, she learns she must
endanger those now dear to her. And to save the lives of others,
she must risk her own ... A gloriously involving and powerful read
for fans of Gone With The Wind and Tracy Chevalier's The Last
