Reviews

"A splendid tale of high-seas adventure that examines the ironies of freedom in post-Civil War America, steeped in the desperate hope to reunite family. Harrison's second offering is not short on plot yet maintains both thoughtful and dastardly characters who insist on defining freedom on their own terms . . . . come hell or high water."--Marcus J. Guillory, author Red Now and Laters
"Teems with adventure . . . . and a good deal of intrigue"--Booklist
"Filled with adventure, this sweeping novel also reflects the complexities of slavery, freedom, and shared history."--Library Journal
