Publisher's Summary

Orphaned in the cholera epidemic of 1833, Adria Starr was cared for by a slave named Louis, a man who stayed in Springfield, Kentucky, when anyone with means had fled. A man who passed up the opportunity to escape his bondage and instead tended to the sick and buried the dead. A man who, 12 years later, is being sold by his owners despite his heroic actions. Now 19, Adria has never forgotten what Louis did for her. She's determined to find a way to buy Louis's freedom. But in 1840s Kentucky, she'll face an uphill battle. 

Based partly on a true story, Ann H. Gabhart's latest historical novel is a tour de force. The vividly rendered town of Springfield and its citizens immerse listeners in a story of courage, betrayal, and honor that will stick with them long after the final moment.

Great Book!

I was led to read this book as I do not read/listen to a book until I read reviews first. This book struck a cord with me and I know why. The solid scripture messages really have spoken to my heart and at a time I needed. Thank you so much Ann Gabhart! I pray believing....
