Kitty, a house slave, always figured it was easiest to do what she’d
always done — obey Missy and follow orders. But when word arrives that
the Yankees are coming, Kitty is faced with a decision: will she
continue to follow the bidding of her owners, or will she embrace this
chance for freedom? Never allowed to have ideas of her own, Kitty is
overwhelmed by the magnitude of her decision. It is her hope to find
the “happy ever after” ending to her life — and to follow Grady, whom
she loves — that are the driving forces behind her choice. Where will it
lead her?
