Extremely well written and readable, this well-researched story is full of well-drawn, believable characters. By the time you finish the novel, you feel like Ann Redfield is someone you've known all your life. And you'll know more about the Underground Railroad and the Quakers. And you won't be able to stop thinking about all the people you've come to know and love and all that has happened to them.

I wish this novel would replace "Gone With the Wind" in the U.S. national consciousness as our preeminent story of the Civil War. It would make a great movie, although, of course, the book would still be better (as always!).

Be prepared to not want to do anything but read this book. The story is so commanding and warrants the reader to not want to put it down until you have reached the last page. It is full of surprises and history of the underground railroad and the lives of the Quakers and their gentle beliefs. It is told in such a way that the reader will re-learn what we were taught years ago about slavery and the unfortunate fate of many people. It captures both your mind and heart. The story lines flow with ease and you have a visual the entire time while reading the book. It's truly interesting, fascinating and an absolute wonderful read.

The Redfield Farm has held me captivated for two days. I had no idea my ancesters were so involved in this incredible journey of the underground railroad. The author tells a story that educates and keeps you on the edge of your seat as Judith Redline Coopey has done in her work. This book has changed my total perception of history. History,romance,tears, adventure and laughter. I am proud to be of the Quaker decent and how this author Judith Redline Coopey depicts life in the mid 1800's, in central Pa, so clearly, like you were there, and understand what this all means to history,so forgotten today. As a born and raised Central Pennsylvanian, who moved to the south many years ago, I find this book incredibly enlightening and moving..

This story is about the very serious topic of slavery and those who helped in a time of crisis in the US. The helping hands are mostly those of Quakers so the reader gets a peek into that religion and its traditions along with a view of the Underground Railroad. There's a good bit of adventure in the story making it fun to read. This reader needed to suspend belief a number of times because the adventures came too fast and the coincidences were a bit too amazing, however, these characteristics of the story did help its entertainment value. This is a painless way to learn a little bit of history.

I grew up in Central Pennsylvania and then moved to the D.C. area. When Ann was traveling, I knew where most of the towns/cities were. This book is one that I like to read from cover to cover at one sitting. I found it so interesting that I read it twice within four days. This book is an excellent history lesson for those of us who did not know much about the Underground Railroad. Well done, Judy.

Curl up with Redfield Farm and be prepared for a wonderful experience. When I read a book that visualizes right off the pages I know I have a winner. Redfield Farm does that from page 1 and would make a great screen play. Good writing, interesting characters and wonderful history of which we all need to be reminded. Lots of surprises along the way that introduce you to the depth of the author's soul and love of history. Would like to see more from this author.

I can't remember any book that moved me like Redfield Farm has. As an American history buff, the story of how the Underground Railroad helped runaway slaves escape to freedom first caught my attention. Then I was drawn into the story of the lives of Ann Redfield and her brother Jesse and their family.

Author Judith Redline Coopey weaves a story rich in historical details and filled with interesting characters, some as inspiring as Ann, the strong Quaker woman whose life is devoted to serving others, and her brother Jesse, who is deeply involved in the Underground Railroad; as well as Amos, the stern family patriarch; brother Nathan, who defies his father to fight for the Union during the Civil War; abrasive neighbor Pru, who can never be trusted; and all of the other characters who come and go in Ann's life - lost loves, slave catchers, and more.

By the time I got to the last page, I was so involved in the book that I felt like I knew them all personally, and I didn't want it to end. This is a great book! You won't regret reading it.

Judith Redline Coopey has written an enthralling and unique book about the Quaker abolitionist movement in the 1800s. Ann Redfield, the heroine, is a compelling and complex woman facing issues we don't often associate with the era. Heart wrenching. You won't soon forget her story of sacrifice, strength, and courage. I just loved this book!
