L. Van Stelle, a first time author, has completed her new book, “Carry Me Home”: a daring and bold journey of a group of slaves traveling on the Underground Railroad. Will they all make it alive?
While in her early teens, L. Van Stelle lived in a farm house in the Kalamazoo, Michigan area with her family. Some forty years later, during a stay with family, still in the area, she visited the farm to recollect some good memories during that time in her life.

The family living there at that time told her they had discovered a hidden room in the basement which, historically, turned out to be a Safe-House, or hiding place for slaves fleeing from their owners via the Underground Railroad. L. Van Stelle looked into this bit of information and wrote this tale of the plight, fright, and flight of six slaves trying to escape their masters from the south. The author now lives in Nevada and still thinks often of her happy teenage years in a home that none of her family, at the time, realized what a part of history was living there with them.

Published by New York City-based Page Publishing, L. Van Stelle’s powerful tale is a true page-turner that will draw the reader in and touch their hearts. “Carry Me Home” describes the song and the feeling of the slaves as they fled from their plantations in the south, northwest to the Mississippi River. From there they then went on to Chicago and across Michigan to freedom in Canada.

Readers who wish to experience this gripping work can purchase “Carry Me Home” at bookstores everywhere, or online at the Apple iTunes store, Amazon, Google Play or Barnes and Noble.
