Freedom. In 1776 New England, that word is on everyone's lips. But for 13-year-old Isabel the word holds a different meaning, especially after the only mistress she has ever known dies, and instead of receiving the freedom promised, she and her sister are sold to the Locktons, a wealthy New York family. In a matter of hours Isabel has to leave Rhode Island for the hustle and bustle of colonial New York City - a community divided and caught up in the American colonies struggle for independence.

Any additional comments?

As great as the story was, we were disappointed in the quality of the audio, as the narrator sounded like maybe she had a cold or sinus infection while recording. Some parts were difficult to hear and understand. We had to back the audio up a number of times to make sure we heard her correctly.
