Summary

In debt, Kentucky farmer Arthur Shelby reluctantly decides to trade two of his slaves. The two, middle-aged Uncle Tom and young Harry, are to be sold to Mr. Haley, a detestable slave trader. Eliza, Harry's mother and Mrs. Shelby's maid, overhears the details of the arraignment, warns Uncle Tom, and flees with Harry to the north. Eliza and Harry barely make it across the Ohio River before slave catchers can catch up with them. On the run, Eliza and her family seek shelter and safety. Meanwhile, Uncle Tom, who refused to run away, is separated from his family and sold down river. As novel progresses, the juxtaposed narratives highlight the harsh reality of slavery.

Great

I enjoyed the narration. What a sad yet triumphant novel. Triumphant for Tom, Eva, St. Clair, George, Eliza, Ophelia, Topsy, the Shelbys, all rising above the fray and looking to God for ultimate redemption.

Story is good, narration is amazing

The book and story is good, but I wanted to write a review just to mention that the narration of this book by Susie Berneis is by far the best I've ever heard. She does so many unique voices and accents of so many different characters, it's really incredible. Worth it for the performance alone.
