This was one of my books that I was assigned to read and I wasn't really excited to read it. The cover didn't look very interesting. The first night I read it, I was proven wrong. The book was breathtaking. Brenda Woods added beautiful, detailed discripstions that made me smile. Meet Sally May and her family--a mother, a father, and her brother, Abraham. They pick cotton every day--slaves. Sally May and her family would love to leave this horrid land and live somewhere else...a particular place she could call home. One rainy night a visitor comes to talk to Sally May's father, talking about an escape. The next day, they start running way, feeling free. Before Sally May knew it, she loses someone very close to her and comes to a village with Indians. Is this her new home?
