From the publisher: An important, award-winning and profoundly-dramatic novel based on the true story of Margaret Morgan, an 1830s free woman of color living as a respected seamstress, wife and mother in Pennsylvania. Margaret was reclaimed by her former owner in Maryland. After a Pennsylvania court rejected the owner's claim, a Maryland bounty hunter was sent to kidnap Margaret and her children; they were returned to their former owner, who broke up the family and sold Margaret to a South Carolina plantation owner. The ensuing court battle between Pennsylvania and Maryland went all the way to the Supreme Court, becoming the first major legal battle in the arguments over states' rights. Margaret's fate has been lost in the shadows of time, but now journalist Jessica McCann imagines her dignity, strength, determination and courage. Winner of the prestigious Freedom in Fiction Prize; featured as an "Editor's Choice Review" in May 2011 issue of Historical Novels Review.
