T. Davis Bunn has long been one of my favorites. So, too, has been the story of William Wilberforce and his magnificent stand against slavery in England. This story combines the incredible storytelling skills of the Bunn duo with that dynamic time in the joint history of a young America and the homeland of Great Britain, but through the eyes of a brave and compelling young American woman who is on a desperate mission for her family. As the solitary envoy in a land she has only heard about, she steps out into a swirling world of intrigue and doubtful outcomes. This is an excellent read!
