Summary
When the 1850 Fugitive Slave Law passes, thirteen-year-old Martha, the daughter of abolitionists living in Connecticut, embarks on a journey of self-discovery as she travels south to save her kidnapped adopted brother Jake, the orphan of a runaway slave
Summary
Thirteen-year-old Martha Bartlett insists on being a part of the Underground Railroad rescue to bring her brother Jake back home to their abolitionist community in Connecticut. It's 1854 and though African-Americans and mixed-race peoples in the north are supposed to be free, seven-year-old Jake, the orphan of a fugitive slave, is kidnapped by his "owner" and taken south to Maryland
