Song Yet Sung

Author(s): James McBride

General Fiction

In the tense days before the American Civil War, in the swamplands of the Maryland shore, a wounded slave girl and her visions of the future tear a community apart in a riveting drama of hope and redemption. Liz Spocott is a captured slave. Shot and near death, she is shackled to other runaways in the attic of the notorious slave-catcher Patty Cannon. Liz is bound to an ancient, nameless woman who reveals the Code, a fiercely guarded, cryptic means of communication for slaves on the run. When Liz escapes once again, Denwood Long, a troubled slave-catcher and waterman, is coaxed out of retirement to break the Code and track down Liz. Kidnappings, gunfights and chases ensue in this extraordinary story of tragic triumph, and unexpected kindness.
