Overview

Young Enoch Perley grows to manhood at a pivotal time in the nation's history. He listens by the fireside to stories of war and adventure told by his swashbuckling uncle, General Israel Putnam. As he comes of age, the British regulars clash with local militia at Lexington and Concord. Enoch realizes that change is in the air. And that change brings opportunities for a young man not afraid of hard work and sacrifice. He is charged with carrying out a special mission by the proprietors of a new land grant in the wilds of the province of Maine.

Anna Flint grew up in comfort and security, learning the domestic arts at her mother's side. Young Enoch Perley takes a fancy to her, but she wonders if he will ever settle down. When he decides to go to the wilderness of Maine, she must make a decision. Will she leave behind the comforts of home and family to join him in the wilderness?

Kumba, a young African girl, is stolen from her family by slavers. She finds herself on a treacherous journey in the dank and disgusting hold of a slave ship, bound for a land she's never heard of. Tossed about on the sea, fearing she will never see her beloved family again, she feels her spirit leaving her. Can she survive the journey? What will become of her?

Based on a true story.

About the Author

Caroline Grimm moved to Bridgton, Maine with her family when she was seven years old. She grew up surrounded by historic houses, steeped in stories of the past, and her curiosity got the better of her. She immersed herself in local history for the sheer joy of uncovering the past lives of neighbors long gone. She wrote her first paper on the topic in high school. Since that time, she is often found haunting cemeteries, poring over fragile letters, reading crumbling newspapers, tramping across far flung battlefields, and traveling down forgotten roads. Her neighbors sum up her odd behavior by shaking their heads and saying, "She writes."
