Madeline is pensive as she skips down Liberty Road toward her home and her lessons with the formidable Mrs. Marshfield. Talk of war has been resonating through the air and monopolizing the conversation in the Woodworth home for months now. Thankful for the reprieve she stares at the luminous red sky certain she is witness to God's own hand transforming the colors into an artist's dream.
Madeline's discovery of a runaway slave family living on her family's land would begin her own journey of self-discovery and the compelling need to discover the truth.
Will Madeline be able to get the slave family to safety? Will she be able to hold her family together as years of secrets and betrayal threaten to tear them apart?
The product of an upbringing defined by the very core of her southern belief and her awakening to the injustice surrounding her will create a divide between her roots, her family, and home.
Join author Eileen Halpin for a provocative, profound tale of survival, death, innocence, and shame as Madeline learns the true value of freedom and the real meaning of unconditional love under the Red Sky Over Liberty.
