1798 – Ohio
An indentured servant since the age of fourteen, Gwen Morgan longs for freedom. Her greatest wish is to find the sister who was sold to another master when they arrived in North Carolina from Wales.
Then Master Whiteford offers Gwen her freedom at a price—she must agree to live a lie and join a settlement of Quakers relocating to the Northwest Territory of Ohio.
Thomas and Betsy Baldwin have buried their three children and face their elderly years alone until they open their home and hearts to Gwen. Their quiet and steadfast faith touches Gwen and causes her to question her deception.
Torn between her freedom and the truth, Gwen struggles to find her place among the Quakers she’s grown to love.
