Reading this book for the first time as an adult, I have loved and appreciated it deeply. Ann Petry creates a full picture of Tubman's early life, with fictionalized accounts used to help the reader really feel what it may have been like to be this American hero. At the end of each chapter very brief italicized paragraphs give facts that help the reader understand what was happening in the news, in the social environment, that could have impacted how Tubman felt and acted. Very informative and a lovely means of understanding more about the hero and her life.
