Cora is a slave on a cotton plantation in Georgia. When Caesar, a recent arrival from Virginia, tells her about the Underground Railroad, they decide to take a terrifying risk and escape. Though they manage to find a station and head north, they are being hunted. Their first stop is South Carolina, in a city that initially seems like a haven. But the city's placid surface masks an insidious scheme designed for its black denizens. And even worse: Ridgeway, the relentless slave catcher, is close on their heels.

I was interested in this audio in order to learn more about the underground railroad. I was sad to learn that this was not so much about the railroad, but more about some fantasy underground railroad experience with an emphasis on cruelty and also too lacking in historical underpinnings for my tastes.
