In 1850 South Carolina, Jonah Williams sets out on his 18th birthday to flee the plantation on which he was born a slave. He takes with him only a few stolen coins, a knife, and the clothes on his back, following a star that he prays will guide him to safety in the North. Hiding during the day and running through the night, Jonah must elude the men sent to capture him. There is one person, however, who, once on his trail, never lets him fully out of sight: Angel, herself a slave, yet with a remarkably free spirit. Bristling with adventure, the story follows Jonah and Angel through the close calls and narrow escapes, on the winding road to freedom.
