Could he trust her with his life? Laura is furious when she overhears her brother,Bert,and an old friend talking about her as if she were a stranger.

When her mother died,Laura went to live with an aunt and uncle in Virginia. Now she is back home and she discovers that her brother and father are helping runaway slaves escape into Canada. Her house is a stopover on the Underground Railroad.

Laura believes that anyone helping a fugitive slave is breaking the law. Then she meets Martin Paige,a 12-year-old runaway slave who would rather die than be sent back to the South.

From my 7 yr old to this 51 yr old grandmother,we all read this book and enjoyed the message that is shared within the pages. A wonderful story to help explain the story of slavery and the Underground Railroad and how it helped to save so many slaves lives. Very touching story that can lead to a discussion with youngsters about this dark period of history. I highly recommend it!

This is the exciting story of the Underground Railway, and the greedy, ruthless slave-catchers who patrol its vital freedom crossing into Canada. It is also about Laura, a proud girl caught up in a very dangerous mission.
