  • "The stunning new novel from the bestselling author of Girl with a Pearl Earring. Honor Bright is a sheltered Quaker who has rarely ventured out of 1850s Dorset when she impulsively emigrates to America. Opposed to the slavery that defines and divides the country, she finds her principles tested to the limit when a runaway slave appears at the farm of her new family. In this tough, unsentimental place, where whisky bottles sit alongside quilts, Honor befriends two spirited women who will teach her how to turn ideas into actions."
  • "Honor Bright is a modest English Quaker who moves from England to Ohio in 1850, forced by family tragedy to rely on strangers in a harsh, unfamiliar landscape. Nineteenthcentury America is practical, precarious, unsentimental, and scarred by the continuing injustice of slavery. Drawn into the clandestine activities of the Underground Railroad, Honor befriends two surprising women who embody the remarkable power of defiance."

  • "Als die Sklavenfrage Amerika entzweite - ein grosser Frauenroman von Bestsellerautorin Tracy Chevalier Die junge Quäkerin Honor verlässt 1850 aus Liebeskummer ihre Heimat, um in Amerika ein neues Leben zu beginnen. Doch schon kurz nach ihrer Ankunft wird sie von einer harten Realität eingeholt, die Frage der Sklaverei spaltet die Nation. Zu ihrer einzigen Vertrauten wird die temperamentvolle Hutmacherin Belle. Dass sich ausgerechnet der Sklavenjäger Donovan für Honor interessiert, bringt sie in eine schwierige Lage, und sie muss sich zwischen schönen Worten und mutigem Handeln entscheiden. Tracy Chevalier, 1962 in Washington, D. C. geboren, zog 1984 nach England. Sie arbeitete zunächst als Lektorin, begann dann aber zu schreiben. Der internationale Durchbruch gelang ihr mit 'Das Mädchen mit dem Perlenohrring'. Zuletzt erschien bei Knaus ihr Roman 'Zwei bemerkenswerte Frauen'. Die Autorin lebt mit ihrem Mann und ihrem Sohn in London."
