Not what I expected, but interesting still. I wouldn't call this book good or bad, it's right there in between. A quick read, intrigue and history all wrapped into one, good fro anyone interested in Underground railroad. Good for a fun read.
I loved this book as a young reader. It was mysterious and intriguing and takes you away from the reality of today.
"A hundred years ago, Dies Drear and two slaves he has hiding in his house, and Underground Railroad station in Ohio, had been murdered. The house, huge and isolated, was fascinating, Thomas thought, but he wasn't sure he was glad Papa had bought it--funny things kept happening, frightening things...The secret to the house is revealed in an exciting final sequence that maintains beautifully the mysterious and dramatic story of a black family caught in an atmosphere of fear and danger."
This is a book my daughter had to read in middle school. It concerns the underground railroad.
