Winter 1838—Kentucky.

Her goal: cross the Ohio River, the boundary between the North and the South, between slavery and freedom.
Although the journey would be perilous, Eliza looked out at the treacherous frozen waters and quickly decided she couldn’t let fear stop her, especially when a new life—a free life—waited just on the other side.
