Song Yet Sung

Written by James McBride | Narrated by Leslie Uggams
An “intricately constructed and impressive” story (Publishers Weekly starred review) from the New York Times bestselling author of The Color of Water. With unsettling visions of the future, freedom seeker Liz struggles to evade slave catchers through the Maryland swamps.

PUBLISHER DESCRIPTION

Look out for McBride’s new book, Five-Carat SoulFrom the New York Times bestselling author of The Good Lord Bird, winner of the 2013 National Book Award for Fiction, and Kill ‘Em and Leave, a James Brown biography. In the days before the Civil War, a runaway slave named Liz Spocott breaks free from her captors and escapes into the labyrinthine swamps of Maryland’s eastern shore, setting loose a drama of violence and hope among slave catchers, plantation owners, watermen, runaway slaves, and free blacks. Liz is near death, wracked by disturbing visions of the future, and armed with “the Code,” a fiercely guarded cryptic means of communication for slaves on the run. Liz’s flight and her dreams of tomorrow will thrust all those near her toward a mysterious, redemptive fate. Filled with rich, true details-much of the story is drawn from historical events-and told in McBride’s signature lyrical style, Song Yet Sung is a story of tragic triumph, violent decisions, and unexpected kindness.
