Now that Veronica is "out" of the picture, Cherity Waters and her father need to come back into it. The Davidson family are accidentally brought into the Underground Railroad and Seth watches a runaway slave be hanged and receives stiff punishment for his beliefs himself. The Cherokee drama is expounded upon in this book in the series, with a lot of historical notes at the end and throughout the text. There is a great surprise at the end of the book. I learned a lot from reading this book, and left my own "trail of tears" as I read the sad history of the Cherokees and many slaves. I highly recommend this book, and the fact that most of the book is based on the genealogy and family history of the author and his wife, comes through in the emotional appeal of the book. ( )

Richmond and Carolyn Davidson's lives changed the day they decided to follow God's will and free their slaves. When the Underground Railroad heard of this possible safe house in the turbulent South, runaways began appearing at their door.

How far will things go before Seth realizes he's playing with fire? As the issue of slavery heats up, neighbors and family members are forced to take sides in this dangerous time. Loyalties and families become divided as the South is plunged into civil war.
