When Grace is called to work in the Big House, serving the terrible Master and Missus, her Mama and Uncle Jim warn her to keep her true thoughts and feelings hidden. But Grace doesn't understand why white people can own other humans, selling and buying them at auctions like they're animals.

When Grace learns of Missus’s plan to sell her family and separate them forever, Grace knows that she and her family must escape. They flee to the Great Dismal Swamp, joining a community of other escaped slaves. There, Grace and her family face hunger, the wilderness, and the risk of being caught – all for their freedom.

Your young readers will be amazed by this remarkable story – told in verse – about a tragic part of American history, as they discover the price so many paid for the right to be free. Ages 8-12. 352pp.
