Song Yet Sung [Book Review]


“Song Yet Sung” by James McBride is in part a story about the Underground Railroad. But it’s also about much more. The story takes place in 1850 about a decade before the start of the Civil War and follows a young woman, Liz Spocott, who has escaped from the plantation where she grew up. Liz is described as being beautiful which has unfortunately attracted the attention of the slave master. Not exactly seeking freedom but rather just to get away from him, she runs away. It turns out that Liz has dreams and visions which enable her to see far into the future. What follows is a thrilling chase and scavenger hunt of sorts as Liz seeks to understand the code of the Underground Railroad in hopes of escaping the pursuing bounty hunters.
