Summary
Pa made me promise that whatever I decided, I'd stay at Laurelea to help Mr. Heath and the Henrys with the farm and the Underground Railroad, that I'd wait to enlist until I turned eighteen. "Then think long and hard," he said, "before you agree to shoot one of your countrymen--or kin--between the eyes." It was a promise I sometimes regretted, but kept true, until the spring of 1864, until the day Emily's letter came ... The bonds linking family and the lines separating enemies become blurred for seventeen-year-old Robert when the cousin he loves begs him to aid her father, a Confederate prisoner of war, then travel south to help her care for his estranged mother. Unwittingly entangled in a prison escape, left for dead and charged as a spy, Robert must forge his anger and shame into a renewed determination to rescue his family. When confronted by an enemy and a war he no longer understands, Robert finds that the rescue, and its results, may not be up to him. Honor and duty to God and country aren't as clear-cut as he'd first believed
Summary
Seventeen-year-old Robert Glover finds himself in danger, and charged as a spy, as he heads south to help his estranged mother during the Civil War
