Sadly, Sarah is pushed into the adult world long before she should be. With her mother killed in a tragic wagon accident Sarah is left an orphan. She desperately wants a family and prays about that daily. Sarah is bound and determined to keep the secret her mother entrusted to her.
Sarah's Wish takes place in the United States during the 19th century. Runaway slaves are in existence as well as bounty hunters out to catch them. During this time, the underground railround comes in to play creating compassion and heroes out of ordinary people.
We loved this book! It is a wonderful book to introduce children to slavery and the underground railroad. This is the first in a 3 book series about Sarah. To read excerpts from all of the books see here.
