Addy Walker's family is planning a dangerous escape from slavery in the summer of 1864.

Addy and Momma take the terrible risk of escaping by themselves, hoping that the family eventually will be together again in Philadelphia. Set during America?s own struggle over slavery, the Civil War, Addy?s story is one of great courage and love - love of family and love of freedom.
