Review: Passages of Hope by:T. Haynes

 Passages of Hope (Doors to the Past)

About the Book:

Discover the Story Behind a Secret Passageway
Walk through Doors to the Past via a new series of historical stories of romance and adventure.

Gracie Kingston begins renovations on the Philadelphia house inherited from her grandmother and finds a secret room. It is connected to a house nearby, the home of William Still, the man known as the father of the Underground Railroad. As she researches, she discovers a mystery in her house’s ownership. In 1855, Olivia Kingston helps a mother and her young child by hiding them in a secret room in her home. As she helps, she learns that there may be an impostor conductor in their community. As Gracie’s and Olivia’s stories intertwine, they learn the meaning of sacrifice and love.

My Review:

My favorite history is American history. Good or bad or whatever, doesnt matter. I enjoy learning more about America.This story takes place in America during the late 1800's during the height of the slave trade. Why not a very "fun" thing to learn about it is interesting and informative and it does us all good to learn about that time period--as much as possible. It is part of our history. It also has present day Philadelphia as a back drop.

 I really enjoyed learning more about that time period and learning more about Gracie. This is a story that is generational so you have intertwining stories which is always fun. Time is a contributing factor in each story whether it is that of Gracie or Olivia but that were very easy and interesting--which makes for a great read. 

**Disclosure**This book was sent to me free of charge for my honest review from the publisher. All opinions are my own.
