River to Redemption

by Ann H. Gabhart

Enjoy this historical novel set in 19th century Kentucky! When the cholera epidemic hit Springfield, Adria Starr was orphaned and cared for by a slave named Louis. While everyone with means had fled town, Louis stayed behind to watch over his master’s hotel, tend the sick, and bury the dead. Twelve years later, Louis is being sold by his owners despite his past kind and heroic actions. The unconventional Adria, now a young woman of nineteen with abolitionist ideals, is determined to help free Louis, refusing to stay silent and accept “the way things are”.
