Underground - Jean Ferris
It's 1839, Charlotte is sixteen and the new maid at Mammoth Cave Hotel. She doesn't understand the appeal of the cave and doesn't want to go in there herself. But another slave, Stephen, makes some big discoveries in the cave, which has her a little curious. Pretty soon Charlotte gets caught up in the world of the underground rail, helping runaway slaves. And she wonders what it would be like, to run away and have freedom. But there's Stephen, who she has feelings for. And she's not sure if she wants to stay or go.The book was interesting at parts, but I thought could be slow. I never felt that I could to know the characters or had a connection with them. So, the book was okay. An interesting read, but not something I'd read again. However, I really enjoyed the author's note, which explained about the real Stephen and Charlotte.
