Praise for The Last Runaway: `I have always admired Tracy Chevalier's un-showy brilliance, and this moving story of a young English Quaker girl trapped between duty and conscience in 1850s Ohio is the best thing she's written since Girl with a Pearl Earring' Rose Tremain The Last Runaway is a joy to read. Chevalier handles the intersection of two stories - those of pioneering Quakers and escaping slaves - with verve, imagination and, above all, compassion' Maggie O'Farrell `A brave, warm-hearted, moving book; the characters are well-drawn and credible; the local colour meticulously detailed' Joanne Harris `By far her best book since Girl With A Pearl Earring if not better' Amanda Craig `Chevalier places her heroine at the heart, constructing a synergy between character and plot that makes this novel exquisitely complete... addictively compelling... Honor Bright deserves a sequel' THE TIMES `Her best since Girl With a Pearl Earring... as a serious novel about a genuine moral dilemma, it is highly recommended' THE INDEPENDENT `Chevalier immerses herself in period and place. Her research, as always, is meticulous and lightly worn... an entertaining read' GUARDIAN `Tracy Chevalier has woven a rich tapestry here, setting her protagonist at the crosswords of a time explosive with issues surrounding slavery, rapidly changing industry, America's pioneering spirit and its racial divide' INDEPENDENT ON SUNDAY `Chevalier's eye for the telling detail brings it vividly to life. As simple and plain as a Quaker bonnet, but, like a Quaker soul, it contains a hidden light' LITERARY REVIEW `A gripping and potent novel which shows Chevalier at the height of her powers' THE EXPRESS `Tracy Chevalier has found a subject that both fascinates and moves her and the result is this quietly powerful and gripping novel' The MAIL
