Stories Told in Whispers tells of a slave named Bob and his free wife. It's a story of love, tradition, and the great moral testing of America and the system of slavery. Bob is a Baptist preacher and a horse trainer living on the plantation called White Oak. He is owned by Henry Koger. In 1810, after marrying Marie, they were forced to become runaways. Alone and vulnerable, their difficult journey to Ohio leads them through the rugged mountains of Kentucky and Virginia. The journey tests their strength, their courage, and their faith. Along the way they discover a loosely knit organization of people who are willing to offer aid and share the risks for the cause of freedom. The coalition is made up of the many Christians who operate the shadowy Underground Railroad. This book gives you a taste of the antebellum south, as well as glimmer of the grass root forces that formed the America of today. It is testimony to the many unsung heroes of the elusive Freedom Train and its ghostly riders.Chapter 2aLove At First Sight November 1st Wednesday 1809 Bob liked to sit in the shade of the great pecan trees, ...
