Delia Sherman's The Freedom Maze never ceased to capture my attention. I especially enjoyed the attention to detail, specifically in the historical information on slavery. The plot was confusing at times, with Sophie's journeys back in time, but the elements of fantasy were well woven into the storyline. I would recommend this book to any lovers of historical fiction, or even those looking for a strong coming-of-age story about a young girl. This is the first book I have read by Delia Sherman, but I enjoyed her clear prose and definitive voice.
