Told from the perspective of a tattered rag doll named Sally, "Almost to Freedom follows a young slave girl and her parents as they escape from slavery and start the dangerous journey along the Underground Railroad to a place called Freedom. Lindy and Sally are best friends--wherever Lindy goes, so does Sally. They eat together, sleep together, and they even pick cotton together. So, when Lindy and her momma run away one night, Sally goes too. At the first stop, Sally and Lindy are hiding in the basement when slave catchers approach. Lindy and her parents must escape quickly. In the rush Sally is left behind. Days pass and Sally waits patiently in the dark for Lindy to return. Then, one day, the door opens, and Sally is once again swept into loving arms. At once heart-wrenching and uplifting, "Almost to Freedom is a story that will resonate with readers of all ages long after it has been read.
