Description

An action-filled chronicle of a brave slave woman's grueling odyssey as she seeks freedom in the north. Rachel, empowered by the spirit of her grandmother and realizing that the Emancipation Proclamation doesn't free her, decides to make a bold escape from Kentucky to freedom when the "Promise Moon" appears. When her husband is reluctant to join her, she takes their baby and leaves on her own. She evades bloodhounds and bounty-hunters, receives help from unexpected places and survives, but learns that the cost of freedom is always more than a person is willing to pay. While she struggles to heal herself, she becomes a Civil War battlefield nurse in order to help others. Joe, her husband, learns how to be his own man instead of another man's property. He begins to think for himself and realizes that being denied an education is no excuse for remaining ignorant. Their stories are a testament to the resilient power of hope and courage.

Author Biography

A research grant to explore the Underground Railroad in Kentucky inspired this book. Stephen Brown is currently working on his third novel. He lives in Kentucky and travels throughout the state on behalf of the Kentucky Humanities Council Speakers Bureau. His previous work, Shadows of Chaco Canyon, reanimates a world heritage site in Northern New Mexico, a special place where the earth and sky touch.
