About the Book:

Missouri. A scorching summer in 1834. A deadly whiteout winter in 1835. Fifteen-year-old Thornton Guthrie is trapped in an isolated life. He has one chance to flee his wicked father, Marcus Guthrie, and save his mother: escape with Marcus’ three slaves, William, Ronan, and Henry. A tale of strange alliances threatened by harsh elements, a deadly secret, a crafty interloper, and an ill-timed first romance. An edge-of-your-seat race against the clock and the times in which the runaways live. A journey of hope, fear, love, and the search for triumph against the odds.

"Seat-gripping suspense. Energetic and spirited storytelling make this an entertaining read." (Kirkus Reviews)

“Heartbreaking, nerve-wracking, triumphant." (San Francisco Book Review)

"...a fast-paced read with a lot of action..." (Apex Reviews)
