Samuel’s an educated boy. Been taught by a priest. He was never supposed to be a slave.
He’s a good boy too, thought- ful and kind. The type of boy who’d take the blame for something he didn’t do, if

So now they don’t call him Samuel anymore.
And the sound of guns is getting ever closer . . .
Jon Walter’s second novel is a beautiful and moving story about the power of belief and the strength of the human spirit, set against the terrifying backdrop of the American Civil War.
