Robert Glover knows earlier on that something is amiss. But what it is, he can’t quite put his finger on. In a time and place where the issue of slavery is a subject of hot debate Robert knows that slave-running is very risky business. But never could he have dreamed that it would tear his family apart. When slavery and prejudice hits closer to home Robert must take a stand and decide what his principles will be.
When it was released about seven years ago I borrowed a copy of William Henry is a Fine Name and found it to be an engrossing read. A little harsh and a little bit rough but engrossing. At that time I was reading everything and anything that related to the Underground Railroad and the Civil War so that may have had something to do with it. But anyway. After a reread I found it remains the same. Though the main characters are children readers of all ages will find this title worth the time it takes to read as it teaches important lessons in friendship and morality.
