Cain is a scarred but proud man haunted by a terrible skill: the ability to track people who don't want to be found.

Rosetta is a runaway slave fueled by the passion and determination only a mother can feel. And she will risk everything for the promise of freedom.

In the perilous years before the Civil War, their fates will intertwine in an unforgettable journey, one of hardship and redemption that will take them from Virginia to Boston and back - an odyssey that will change them forever.

Michael C. White has written beautiful novels before, including the acclaimed A Dream of Wolves, yet none has prepared us for the sheer scope and drama of this new tale, a dazzling tapestry of imagination and character, atmosphere, and emotion. Poignant and utterly compelling, it is a story to be savored and remembered.

Listener Opinions

    " I find myself thinking of this book -- long after I read it. It has an almost haunting effect. Well written and character development is great! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Melvago | 2/3/2014

    " A novel about a chapter in our history about the pursuit of runaway slaves by bounty hunters in pre-Civil War America. The first quarter was slow and redundant but by the last 3rd, I couldn't put the book down. I cam to love the bounty hunter Cain, even with all his foibles and who wouldn't love Rosetta. The writing seemed to get better towards the end. It is amazing what horrible things we did to African American people during that pre-Civil war America and after. "

    " It feels like the author wrote this for a movie and I find the characters unbelievable and not realistic. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Laurelyn | 1/30/2014

    " I really loved this book. I thought the writing was beautiful and the story really drew me in. I cared about the characters. I was even interested in the ones I didn't like. If you like historical fiction I definitely recommend. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mary | 1/30/2014

    " This book is not entirely unpredictable, but I still enjoyed every minute of it. It put several new spins on the typical slavery novel, starting with the fact that it takes place right before the start of the Civil War, as well as introducing the character of the sympathetic slave catcher who the reader can't help but cheer for. I learned more than I have from most other historical works of fiction, and I definitely fell in love with both of the main characters. I didn't want it to end! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Trudy | 1/30/2014

    " This story is pre-Civil War. Men who chase runaway slaves are called soul catchers. What type of men are these??? Several different kinds of men portrayed in this book---those that you might imagine and then Cain. He tries to justify his acts of returning slaves. Sometimes difficult to read--story of slaves and relationships to masters, each other and those returning them. Really about mans inhumanity to man---how did we do it??? So much conflict---wars, inner turmoil, and just plain old trying to figure out who we are and what we really stand for. An interesting read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Carol Wood | 1/25/2014

    " I really liked this book. It was hard to put down. But then it had a dumb ending. I hate when I read a really good book and it has a dumb ending. It was like the author got tired of writing and just wanted it to end. The ending to the book could have been so much better. Disappointed! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Deb | 1/16/2014

    " Soul Catcher is a term for someone who hunts down and returns runaway slaves. Set in 1857, Augustus Cain is such a catcher charged with returning Henry and Rosetta who are the property of Eberly, a cruel and abusive master. He does find them despite all the hardships along the way, but it is the return journey and what happens that causes Cain to have a change of heart. Good but predictable. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Becky | 1/14/2014

    " I really liked this book. The insight to life in the South pre-Civil war. Sad to think that slavery EVER existed. It was not a glorified renditioning of the era. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jenne | 12/29/2013

    " The story of a flawed man who recaptures escaped slaves. A recaptured woman teaches him about life, love and redemption. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lori | 12/27/2013

    " Great book, but a caution, the language is pretty rough throughout and there is some intense violence as well. It is a historical fiction book about a slavery. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Rhyannon | 12/26/2013

    " This was a good but sorrowful book. It gave a very interesting view of the South, slavery and the time before the Civil War. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Liz Goldin | 12/25/2013

    " sharon recommended - we did for book group -= really liked it "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Janet | 12/2/2013

    " I gave up on the book after about 100 pages. The number one reason being the fact that because of the author's ineptitude derogatory terms were rampant. The second reason being, that after 100 pages, I don't care; the story has yet to draw me in or interest me enough to continue. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mignon Young | 12/1/2013

    " This was a new author for me. His characters are human, but flawed, making them realistic. I learned so much about runaway slaves and the post civil war era. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Manju | 11/3/2013

    " good writing - i felt transported and felt as if I was with the characters in the book. long time since some author made me feel like that. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Colette | 9/12/2013

    " Excellent book! Gives you a feeling of what it was like to live during the years leading up to the Civil War. Great characters and plot. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Connie Riddle | 8/9/2013

    " Easy reading and informative about the days of slavery, Soul Catchers and realising just how lucky we are to live in this day and age. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ginda | 8/18/2012

    " Very readable account of slavery from a different point of view - that of the slave catcher. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Larry | 5/2/2012

    " Makes me want to read Milton... "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Shui | 4/11/2011

    " This book is riveting and intriguing in parts. Unfortunately I had a hard time believing in the main character. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 John | 2/9/2011

    " This is a book not to miss! Well written, well plotted, interesting, descriptive and a must read "

    " Not sure if I'm going to make it through this one or not. Hopefully it doesn't get to dirty!

    Just finished...good story. Could've done without some of the language though. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Donette | 10/17/2010

    " Cain, was an interesting character and although the plot was predictable, it was an good read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Amy | 10/6/2010

    " Fascinating look at the adventure of a man who hunts runaway slaves (for a profit) and returns them to their masters, pre Civil war. Not surprisingly, the subject matter is somewhat difficult to read at times (along with one character who was quite vulgar), but still compelling and worth reading. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Andy | 8/26/2010

    " Started off slow, but it picked up the pace and finished fast. I really enjoyed the story and it was well written. The only issue I had was the ending left me wanting for more. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Denise | 8/18/2010

    " Though extremely depressing since the book deals with slavery, it was a good read. Read something light afterwards. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Barbara | 8/1/2010

    " I really liked this story of a slave catcher as he comes to realize the humanness of the woman he intends to return to slavery. "
