A slave struggles for freedom in the early 1800's

In the year 1800, twelve-year-old Moses is put on the auction block for the first time, to be hired out by the year until adulthood. He experiences the cruelty and inhumanity of slavery, forging his character and his faith in God.

In adulthood, his wife and children are sold away and he is twice swindled out of money he earns to buy his freedom. His life and struggles, which uncannily parallel those of the Biblical Moses, are a shining example of what can be accomplished through faith and perseverance.

This novel uses an 1843 slave narrative to explore the cultural, religious, and economic pressures allowing slavery to endure in a new country that has promised justice for all.
