Author Beth Kanell reads from her new book, The Long Shadow (Five Star Publishing, April 2018).
Beth Kanell of Waterford, Vermont, has written a story of 1850s Vermont. When Alice Sanborn and her best friend cross paths with a bounty hunter in rural northern Vermont, the teens stage a daring rescue for former slave Sarah Johnson. But winter weather, politics and challenges of mountain life bring more danger.
“Adults and teens alike will savor this well-researched tale of a teenage girl, her best friend, and their black friend Sarah, who still isn’t safe from bounty hunters even in the snow-covered villages of Vermont.”-Edith Maxwell
