Foresthill resident Debbie Griffin has published her first historical fiction novel,

The Eternal Conductor, in November, and it’s now available on Amazon.

When Debbie moved her elderly mother to a nursing home from their century-old farmstead in Vermont, they cleaned out the property and discovered it had once been a waystation along the Underground Railroad. Upon retiring, Debbie made several trips to the Northeast, where she researched the Underground Railroad routes. As a result, she was motivated to write this historical fiction novel about the perilous travels of an escaped slave family trying to reach freedom in Canada in 1850.

“After an eight-year labor of love writing this story about my hometown, I’m excited to finally have it published,” said Debbie. One reviewer wrote: “I highly recommend this book! The Eternal Conductor gives a thrilling ride on the Underground Railroad from an unexpected angle, complete with ghosts, the ripple-out effect of unfulfilled lives, and a generations-long legacy. What happens when one’s moral law confronts the official law of the land? Three-dimensional characters and the author’s you-are-there way of writing bring it alive. 5 Stars!”

Debbie wishes to thank the Foresthill community for their support and hopes you will share with your friends. It would make a great Christmas present and a fun winter read!
