Millie Keith faces a moral dilemma when she leaves her home in the Indiana frontier to live with her uncle on his Southern plantation.

Zondervan House
'Slavery is a great evil and we must stand against it,' insisted Millie. 'But we've never seen it ourselves. How are we supposed to know for sure if the awful stories we hear are true?' Effie asked. 'Millie will find out,' Celestia Ann said with certainty. 'I...will?' Millie questioned as she looked from one to the other. 'Of course you will,' Celestia Ann said. 'You can't spend four months on a cotton plantation without seeing for yourself! You will write to us, won't you?' 'What are you talking about?' asked Millie, her head spinning. 'I'm not going anywhere!' 'I thought you knew, Millie. Everybody else knows.' 'What do they know, and how do they know it?' Millie asked, gripping her Bible.When fifteen-year-old Millie Keith prepared a Bible study teaching on the evils of slavery, she didn't know that God was about to give her an opportunity to investigate the truth firsthand. To help cure her persistent cough, she leaves her family and frontier home in Indiana to visit the wealthy plantation in the South owned by her Uncle Horace Dinsmore. Will Millie have the courage to live out her faith amidst relatives she doesn't know?
This book follows Millie on a fascinating historical journey from the Indiana frontier to the Old South, where Christians were faced with impossible choices daily and struggled to live out their faith amidst the ancient evil of slavery. Set in turbulent 1836, when heroes and heroines of the Christian faith took a stand for freedom and justice for all, Millie finds that changing the world is not easy, and often a price must be paid.'Excellent for Homeschool Use'
