Freedom to the Promised Land


 Freedom to the Promised Land, historical fiction, portrays the trials that Kentucky Blacks endured on their journey to freedom from persecution and terrorism, both before and after the American Civil War.
Based on 19th century newspaper accounts of lynchings in Boone County, Kentucky, Freedom traces the life and brutal death of Simon Williams and the struggles of his only child, Katie, after her father’s lynching. During her quest to vindicate her beloved “Poppy”, Katie integrates her circle of friends, baseball players after her own heart. But will their tenacity and courage be sufficient against the infamous Judge Lynch? Can the children alone save their French friend, Louis Lefevre, from the murderous intentions of an enraged mob?
Freedom to the Promised Land targets middle school to young adult audiences.
