A novel rooted in the remarkable, little-known history of the only secessionist town north of the Mason-Dixon Line.
When escaped slave Joe Bell collapses in her father’s barn, Mary Willis must ward off Confederate guerrillas and spies, Joe’s vengeful owner, and even her own brother to help the handsome fugitive cross to freedom. Mary has always been an outspoken abolitionist, and helping runaways is the only thing that makes her life in Town Line bearable. When rebels cross from nearby Canada intent on killing him, they bring the war’s brutal devastation, and threaten to destroy all that Mary loves.
