Samuel's an educated boy. Been taught by a priest. He was never supposed to be a slave. He's a good boy too, thoughtful and kind. The type of boy who'd take the blame for something he didn't do, if it meant he could save his brother. So now they don't call him Samuel any more. But Samuel is not Friday and he won't let being sold into slavery change who he is or diminish his humanity. And the sound of guns is getting closer as the American Civil War escalates. An exciting adventure story set in one of the most turbulent periods of American history.
