Separated from their mother and lost in the woods, two runaway slave children travel the Underground Railroad in search of both freedom and a forever home with their missing mother.
Thomas and Cassie’s mother hadn’t included Old Red in her plans for escape, and on the night they were to meet the Conductor, the master’s old hound dog had ripped her plans to shreds as surely as he would her two children if he were to catch them. Using herself as a decoy, she told them to follow the river and stay in the water to hide their scent. The children did as she instructed never knowing if this would be the last time they would see her, or that this night would be the beginning of a long, lonely journey with an unknown ending.
