U is for Underground Railroad, The Golden Pathway by Donna McDine - A to Z 2015 Challenge

The Underground Railroad...

Synopsis: As one young boy struggles to come to terms with his father’s beliefs and actions towards slaves, he pulls from deep within his soul, courage and determination he never knew existed. Will David’s attempts to save Jenkins come to fruition or does David get caught red handed in defying his Pa?

Excerpt: “David crept into the barn.  His first attempts to help Jenkins hadn’t gone well.  Jenkins cringed when he saw David.  Over time, David gained Jenkins’ trust with promises that he was not there to harm him, but to help.  Tonight the wounds from the whip were worse than ever.  The welts looked as if caterpillars were stuck under the skin.”

It's a pleasure to have you stop by for a visit. Thanks a bunch for your interest and time!
