Terri J. Haynes joins me on the podcast this week, and boy, did we have a fun chat! We talked about her dual timeline novel, Passages of Hope, which is part of Barbour Publishing's "Doors to the Past" series. It's a wonderful book about the Underground Railroad and its legacy. We also chat about her dream when she was in elementary school to get locked inside a library for the night. Doesn't that sound like fun? She almost pulled it off! There was so much more we chatted about. Be sure to take a listen.
Passages of Hope by Terri J. Haynes
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.
