Historical Fiction • 12.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2021

This fascinating historical audiobook makes the sorrows and joys of life before the Civil War come to life. The story of abolitionist John Brown is told from the perspectives of his wife, Mary; his daughter-in-law, Wealthy; and his 15-year-old daughter, Annie. Katharine Charles does a consummate job bringing each of these distinctive female voices to life as each woman discovers herself part of a family and an important player in the abolitionist movement. Author Higginbotham's meticulous research brings compassionate verisimilitude to the story. Charles's performance helps listeners share the complex feelings of each woman--from the sorrows of losing a child to the joys of falling in love and the determination to put an end to slavery.
