Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Fiction. Young Adult Novel. African American Studies. In this, the final instalment of Jean Rae Baxter's best-selling young adult trilogy, eighteen-year-old Charlotte sails from Canada to Charleston in the beleaguered Thirteen Colonies to join her new husband Nick. During these final months of the American Revolution, she must muster all her wit and courage when she has to rescue Nick from being tortured as a spy in an alligator-infested South Carolina swamp. She must also find ways to bring freedom to a pair of teenage runaway slaves she has befriended. FREEDOM BOUND delivers a frank and realistic picture of the slave system and a powerful account of what was at stake for both white and black Loyalists as they prepared to find a new home in the country that was soon to be Canada. Like The Way Lies North and BROKEN TRAIL, the two novels that preceded it, FREEDOM BOUND contains a wealth of carefully researched historical details of one of the least known chapters of our history.

About the Author

Jean Rae Baxter writes both for an adult general audience and for young adults. FREEDOM BOUND is the third volume in a trilogy about the United Empire Loyalist experience. The Way Lies North (2007) won the Arts Hamilton Award for a young adult book and was nominated for the Red Maple and Stellar awards. BROKEN TRAIL won the Gold Medal in the Moonbeam Awards. Jean lives in Hamilton where she is one of the organizers of the lit Live Reading Series and serves as co-chair of Arts Hamilton's Literary Advisory Committee.
