Within a crowded courthouse, twelve years before the Civil War, a gentleman stands accused. Reporters scribble and spectators gasp when the prosecuting attorney names Thomas Garrett mastermind of a vast criminal conspiracy, one that helps fugitive slaves evade capture.
Part wilderness adventure, part courtroom drama, part tender romance, The Chords of Memory breathes life into American history. Carrying us from the depths of secret caverns, along perilous, midnight runs, into hidden chambers, across pestiferous swamps, and finally up- onto a sleek Baltimore clipper racing toward freedom, these pages overflow with vivid characters, clever stratagems, and thrilling escapes.
Breaking every rule, the novel's haunting, lyrical style shatters convention; its bold theme confronts political taboos. David Beckett's tale of courage, heroism, and redemptive love has stunned critics and delighted readers.
Blazing Lantern is proud to share with you this inspired, historic narrative.
