Paperback
In nineteenth-century Cincinnati, fourteen-year-old Tim Allerton finds his anti-slavery views tested when he and his younger sister Pam save the life of a slave baby whose mother has recently been murdered.

- Publisher At school, Hollis Bodley tries to outdo Tim in everything and openly makes fun of Tim's anti-slavery views. At home, Tim's father constantly reminds him to keep his opinions to himself because their family business depends on customers from the South. Pam, Tim's younger sister, doesn't understand why he has a problem with slavery in the first place. "Slaves are treated just like family," she says. Then Tim and Pam are put into a situation where they can save the life of a slave baby whose mother has just been killed. Will Pam change her views on slavery...or will she continue to ignore the problem? And when a move to drive black people out of the section of the city called "Little Africa" puts Tims's good friend Ward Baker in danger, how can he help?

- Publisher Tim Allerton must deal with the anger he feels toward slavery. His family's business depends on the South, and his father asks him to remain neutral. Tim and his sister, Pam, are put into a situation where they can save the life of a slave baby whose mother is killed. Tim also faces danger when his good friend, Ward Baker, is forced out of his section of the city known as 'Little Africa.'

- Publisher History comes alive for eight-to-twelve year olds in this close-up, fun-to-read, multi-generational story of a fictional family spanning three centuries of actual historical events. God's hand is seen at work in people's lives and in the events that shaped our nation.
