Publisher's Summary

Peter Leavell’s award-winning debut novel is a touching and inspiring tale of surprising heroism amid the horrors of the Civil War.

Tad, a slave boy of exceptional hidden gifts, comes of age just as the Civil War erupts in coastal South Carolina. An unlikely deliverer, the young man's hopes remain buried under a crushing weight of abuse and degradation until an extraordinary event thrusts him and 10,000 fellow slaves into an uncharted wilderness of freedom and danger.

Based on true events, Gideon’s Call immerses listeners in the slave culture of the antebellum South and propels them on a dramatic journey of hope, discovery, faith, and triumph. It is the story of a remarkable young man who, in the face of unimaginable obstacles, overcomes shame and prejudice to emerge a champion of thousands.
