520    "Young Hiram Walker was born into bondage--and lost his 
       mother and all memory of her when he was a child--but he 
       is also gifted with a mysterious power. Hiram almost 
       drowns when he crashes a carriage into a river, but is 
       saved from the depths by a force he doesn't understand, a 
       blue light that lifts him up and lands him a mile away. 
       This strange brush with death forces a new urgency on 
       Hiram's private rebellion. Spurred on by his improvised 
       plantation family, Thena, his chosen mother, a woman of 
       few words and many secrets, and Sophia, a young woman 
       fighting her own war even as she and Hiram fall in love, 
       he becomes determined to escape the only home he's ever 
       known. So begins an unexpected journey into the covert war
       on slavery that takes Hiram from the corrupt grandeur of 
       Virginia's proud plantations to desperate guerrilla cells 
       in the wilderness, from the coffin of the deep South to 
       dangerously utopic movements in the North. Even as he's 
       enlisted in the underground war between slavers and the 
       enslaved, all Hiram wants is to return to the Walker 
       Plantation to free the family he left behind--but to do so,
       he must first master his magical gift and reconstruct the 
       story of his greatest loss. This is a bracingly original 
       vision of the world of slavery, written with the narrative
       force of a great adventure. Driven by the author's bold 
       imagination and striking ability to bring readers deep 
       into the interior lives of his brilliantly rendered 
       characters, The Water Dancer is the story of America's 
       oldest struggle--the struggle to tell the truth--from one 
       of our most exciting thinkers and beautiful writers"--
