Freedom’s Flight by Penny Zeller
Why did the Reverend Matthias Sorenson who assisted in runaway slaves need assurance that Annalise Van Houten is to be trusted?  

Now to get all of these questions and so much more answered you will have to pick up this  Barbour novella collections of  'The Underground Railroad Brides' to get all of the answers.  

I found each of these stories so very well written even though some of the reads for me were somewhat painful in all that its particular story was about.  It was very hard reading the lengths both the slaves [runner] and conductors went through in helping these slaves get their freedom.  I will also say I did learn a lot from the read especially in finding out how important Canada was the freed slave.  Overall I will say this was a pleasant read.   I would have liked to have known a little more about the  research accuracy  for each of these historical reads. However, one can tell from the reads that these authors really put in a lots of work in bringing all of this out to the reader in all of the reads having a HEA. So, we are given some history along with some clean sweet faith filled romances[love story] that will keep your interest turning the pages to see what will be coming next.
