Deidre, a runaway slave, and her son, Jedediah, are thankful for their new life with Ethan and Mandy Evanston, who treat them as treasured family members. But memories of her beloved Jeremiah, sold away from her, fill her heart with anguish. Jeremiah has been offered a document of freedom — and wages that could buy his family from slavery — if he chooses to stay at Rose Hill Plantation.
