ABBY IS FREE FROM SLAVERY BUT NOT FROM THE SECRETS OF HER PAST...
It's 1865 in the conquered South and things are not as they were before the war. Thirteen-year-old Abby Joyner still lives on the plantation where she was raised but she and her grandparents are free now and continue on for a small salary.

But answers are few and she is about to discover that, like freedom, the truth is harder to come by than she could have imagined.
