Summary Excerpt Comments

With strict penalties enacted under the 1850 Fugitive Slave Act, Olivia Pratt, now widowed, makes a family promise to end her dangerous abolitionist activities and close her safe house, an Underground Railroad station that has harbored numerous runaway slaves for years before her husband’s death.

When a desperate runaway appears needing shelter, Olivia’s heart won’t let her refuse. As family turmoil grows, sadistic slave catchers arrive in town in search of the fugitive.

Olivia faces the deadly consequences of her broken promise when the catchers terrorize her daughter, ignite murderous rage in one son, and leave another near death. Still, the slave catchers are determined to collect their bounty.

What follows is both a heart-breaking and heart-warming story of a family healing from grief, terror, and destructive secrets in a world where the hope of freedom for all dwells only in shadows.
