A free woman of color in the 1830s, Margaret Morgan lived a life full of promise. One frigid night in Pennsylvania, that changed forever. They tore her family apart. They put her in chains. But they never expected her to fight back.

In 1837, Margaret Morgan was kidnapped from her home in Pennsylvania and sold into slavery. The state of Pennsylvania charged her kidnapper with the crime, but the conviction was later overturned by the U.S. Supreme Court. It was the first time a major branch of the federal government had made a pro-slavery stand, and the ruling in Prigg v. Pennsylvania sewed the bitter seeds of the states' rights battle that eventually would lead to the Civil War.

Yet, the heart of this story is not a historic Supreme Court ruling. It is the remarkable, unforgettable Margaret Morgan. Her life would never be the same. Her family had been torn apart. Uncaring forces abused her body and her heart. But she refused to give up, refused to stop fighting, and refused to allow her soul to be enslaved.

    " This book was truly amazing, upsetting in many ways, but amazing. It still breaks my heart that for so many years we, as a nation, condoned owning other human beings as chattel and treated them worse than animals. "

    " I always have a hard time reading these types of stories because they just make me angry and ashamed. However I did like the book and felt the story needed to be told. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jamey | 12/2/2013

    " An emotional story of a "free" family living in Pennsylvania. A mother and her 3 children are kidnapped and returned to slavery. The story tells the horrors of slavery but also the intelligence and bravery of one woman to survive. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jaleksa | 11/11/2013

    " I could not imagine living that way. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ginger Rose | 9/22/2013

    " This is a sad story, but it also has rewarding parts. It is interesting to see how life might have been for the slaves and how it was a challenge to be free at the same time. Reading this book is well worth your time. "

    " Wonderful read !!! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Candy | 8/20/2012

    " Written for young adults, this story was an absorbing experience of the indignities of slavery and the failure of the law to protect free black Americans. After reading it, I had a much better understanding of one of the basic reasons for the Civil War. "
