A compelling coming-of-age story about a 13 year old boy in the pre-Civil War south attempting to make sense of the surrounding chaos. As he comes to terms with his father's involvement in the Underground Railroad and his mother's antipathy toward abolitionism young Robert finds himself at a crossroads. His best friend is a black boy named William Henry and the dehumanizing effects of slavery are unquestionable in Robert's mind - he realizes he cannot just sit idly by. His family is pitted against him and Robert's feelings of justice and family loyalty have enough conflict to start a war of their own...
