Bruce Millikan has just returned home after an eight month mission working with the Underground Railroad in Indiana, and yet again, he has managed to say the wrong thing to Flora Saferight. Flora and her sister Irene are planning a train journey to Charlottesville, and are asked to change their plans so they can travel with two escaped slaves with them - escorted by Bruce Milliken. Neither Bruce nor Flora are happy with the proposal, but Flora has experience as a midwife, which will be necessary for the journey, and Bruce is the best choice, so the two are forced to work together.

There is a good mix of internal and external conflict, with Flora and Bruce's longstanding antipathy towards one another and the need to keep the escaped slaves safe. They are two flawed but likeable characters--many Christian novels, especially historicals, have such perfect Christians that they just aren't believable. Bruce and Flora are very believable as they travel together and begin to acknowledge their growing feelings for each other.

Path of Freedom got off to a good start with a two page explanation of the (disputed) history of underground code quilts, and the involvement of Quakers in the Underground Railroad (a national network of safe houses for escaped slaves seeking freedom in the North and later in Canada). I like this kind of discussion, because it shows the author has done her research. Sadly, it seems that historical accuracy is not a prerequisite to getting published, but it makes reading so much more pleasurable (and makes writing a positive review much easier).

This is the third book in the Quilts of Love series that I have read and reviewed, and the first historical.

This is the third book in the Quilts of Love series that I have read and reviewed, and the first historical. The novels are all stand-alone stories by a range of authors, but all have a real or fictional quilt as a central part of the story. I think this is my favourite so far, and I will certainly keep my eyes open for more books in this series, and more novels by Jennifer Hudson Taylor.

Thanks to Abingdon Press and NetGalley for providing a free ebook for review.

By lighthouse88 - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
There are many historical events that capture the imagination of authors, screenwriters, all types of people. Little known facts about someone, some event or era in history can stir the imagination of people. The Civil War was a period of time that like a prism can be looked at from various angles. Jennifer Hudson Taylor does so in this work of fiction centered on the Underground Railroad.
In this work of fiction, a Quaker family becomes involved in helping those seeking freedom to realize their dreams. While not all within the community know who helps or doesn't, there is a love story and learning to grow in faith in the story. When Bruce was a youngster, he teased Flora ruthlessly. Now, while on a mission to bring a couple to safety, their new feelings for each other begin to come to light.
Facing all sorts of dangers and challenges causes their past with each other to come out and that sometimes causes them to ask for forgiveness or pray for it. Other times bring the lack of trust and rushed decisions to a head, placing lives at risk. Bruce has run these missions many times before, but on this trip Flora has been asked to help because she is a midwife. Irene, Flora's sister, goes along so that no one will cast suspicion on Flora's reputation if only Flora and Bruce went since they aren't married.
Flora's parents had been on several missions when they were younger, though few ever knew the truth of their whereabouts. Jim and Marta want to have their baby born not into a life of slavery, but one of freedom. Does this become a reality for them? Flora has been in correspondence with a doctor for two years, even considering a courtship with him when she arrives at her aunt's home. Who does Flora choose and why?
One particular aspect of this work of fiction I enjoyed was the tension between a couple of the characters throughout the novel. I also enjoyed watching the author have the Quaker young people develop a friendship with the runaway slaves. At the beginning of the novel, the author shares what she found out about the wagon with the false bottom, the Quakers' role, if any, during the Civil War and how quilts come into play as part of the story.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Sweet Quaker Romance 4 Jan 2013
By S. Dietze - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Jennifer Hudson Taylor's Path of Freedom is the latest in Abingdon's Quilts of Love inspirational line, and it's an enjoyable historical romance set among Quakers in the pre-Civil War south.

Flora Safewright has no problems living in peace with her fellow Quakers...until Bruce Millikan comes back to town. She's still haunted by the childhood taunts he spewed at her which colored others' perceptions of her. Still, the Lord seems to be calling her and her sister, Irene, to join Bruce in one of his dangerous missions: taking an expectant slave couple, Marta and Jim, north to freedom along the Underground Railroad, with the map sewn into her mother's quilt as a guide.

The journey is fraught with tension, but the suspense is not entirely related to reaching the north unnoticed. Flora's skills as a midwife may be put to the test, but such a daunting prospect is rivaled by the anxiety produced by being so close to Bruce, who may be handsome, but surely can't be trusted. For his part, Bruce may be experienced accompanying escaped slaves north, but this trip is like no other he's made. He's not the cruel boy he once was, but how many times can he ask Flora for forgiveness? And can he uphold his Quaker principles and still manage to protect her and their cargo on this journey?

Quick-paced and thoughtful, the story engages questions about forgiveness, justice, and whether it's ok to lie for the right cause. The setting among Quakers is fresh to me (although it took a while to get used to them calling each other "thee"). Readers of historical inspy romance will enjoy yet another of Taylor's solid romances.

I received a copy of this novel from the publisher for purposes of review. A positive review was neither promised nor expected.

5.0 out of 5 stars Captivating Story of Freedom 17 Jan 2013
By The IEMommy - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Path of Freedom by Jennifer Hudson Taylor is another great book in the Quilts of Love series. She writes an amazing story about the Quakers and their involvement with missions to give slaves freedom! I am completely intrigued and awestruck by stories and information about the Underground Railroad.

What amazing courage by the cargo (the slaves) to run away, the conductor (the person in charge of the mission, often the driver) to hide and transport them; the stations (the safe houses) for giving them food and rest along the way and really all who were involved! The story was fiction but nonetheless it was heartwarming to read about the journey and all that was risked! A slave couple expecting their first child was willing to face danger head on because they needed and wanted freedom for their family.

This book even sparked a conversation about the Underground Railroad with my son who is almost five. Samuel and I have never talked about slavery, although we have talked about how lucky we are to live in this country and be free. We've talked about what freedoms we have compared to other countries, but we've never discussed the history of how things were not so long ago.

I asked Samuel what he thought the Underground Railroad could be about; he thought maybe it was the subway. A very practical and predictable answer, but it led to an eye opening conversation (which was probably a little over his head). As we celebrate Martin Luther King Jr. next week we will give it proper observance and revisit our conversation about slavery and what it means to be free.

I loved the suspense and faith in Path of Freedom. Knowing what would happen if they were caught made my heart pound so I read faster. I finished Path of Freedom in two nights; I couldn't wait to find out the ending! Is the mission successful? Will they deliver the cargo to freedom? It is a great book and worth reading to find out!
5.0 out of 5 stars The book arrived in excellent condition. 12 July 2014
By Mary Barrett - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I will be getting all 25 books that are in this series. I got the first two books from Christianbook.com and will get the rest of the series later. The book arrived in excellent condition. Each of the books in this series has a story in the quilt. The one about the the tornado was outstanding as all the books are. I like the way that the writer does the description of the story. It made me visualize what was going on when the event took place. You can also make a quilt that describes your life so your children and generations on will know about you.
