Young Daniel Arabus and his mother are slaves in the house of Captain Ivers of Stratford, Connecticut. By law they should be free, since Daniel’s father fought in the Revolutionary army and earned enough in soldiers’ notes to buy his family’s freedom.

But now Daniel’s father is dead, and Mrs. Ivers has taken the notes from his mother. When Daniel bravely steals the notes back, a furious Captain Ivers forces him aboard a ship bound for the West Indies—and certain slavery. Even if Daniel can manage to jump ship in New York, will he be able to travel the long and dangerous road to freedom?

The second book in the Arabus family saga finds young Daniel trying to retrieve the notes that ensure his and his mother’s freedom, until he is forced aboard a boat and headed for certain slavery in the West Indies.

    " A little preachy. And I hated that the authors had to make up so much stuff for the history to be interesting. I can imagine young readers, tweenagers, really liking this though. "

    " I liked reading this book. It was interesting to read about slavery. I liked the story and the adventure. There were a lot of sad parts but it made me happier in the end. I learned that even though times may be tough, it's better in the end than in the beginning. "
