Description

Not just another Civil War novel! This inspiring story will make you re-think your own definition of freedom, morality and humanity. A perilous sea voyage, a New Bedford whaling ship, Virginia's Dismal Swamp, and the war-ravaged South test the determination and willpower of these two escaped slaves. Their inspiring journey makes this a book you won't want to put down! This page-turning drama is packed with action, emotion, romance and tumultuous adventure, and is vibrantly painted with powerful characters, vivid imagery and factual details of the Civil War era; and is an exploration into the meaning of freedom and love and the unbreakable bond between mother and daughter. In the midst of the Civil War, runaway slaves Daisy Green and her daughter, Celia, attempt a nearly infallible but risky plan to escape from their Southern plantation and stow away on a sailing ship headed north. The cruelties of slavery that have broken Daisy's body have only reinforced her steadfast will to get her daughter to freedom. They will do whatever they must to be free. Mother and daughter are soon separated, and everything changes. Help and danger come from unexpected places. Although their strong bond endures, their hearts are torn by desperation, sorrow, and fear. Faith in God's divine guidance, and in each other, gives them strength to persevere. A perilous sea voyage, a New Bedford whaling ship, the strange, fearsome Dismal Swamp, and the dangerous, embattled Confederate South present fierce challenges to Daisy and Celia in their courageous struggle to find liberty and happiness. Emotional, fast-paced, exciting, and compelling, their journeys take them to heights of happiness and plunge them to depths of despair - and back again. Their incredible search for freedom becomes a fight for life and a test of love. FREEDOM CALLS to these unforgettable heroines, Daisy and Celia. Will they find freedom, ... and each other?
