Deborah Healabout this book: Abby and her boyfriend John "time-surf" in the Old Slave House in Equality, Illinois, which was built atop Hickory Hill in 1834 and once overlooked Half Moon Salt Mine where the original owner John Crenshaw accumulated a blood-tainted fortune using slave labor.
My family hails from that region. Mom and my uncles used to walk right past the Old Slave House on their way to school. The mansion is listed on several sites as the most haunted house in Illinois. That could stem from the horrible things that happened on the third floor during John Crenshaw's day—or from the fact that Uncle Darrell and his friends used to make ghost noises to scare the tourists who visited there back in the 1940s.
Sometimes my heart breaks with what I learn through my research. This was especially true for Every Hill and Mountain. I've lived in Illinois all my life and yet had no idea that slavery played such a huge role in the history of the Land of Lincoln. The title is an allusion to Dr. King's famous "I Have a Dream" speech, and I consider the novel an assignment for my continuing education.
