Now Jordan, as a newly escaped fugitive, plans how to rescue his mother, two sisters, and a brother from slavery.But has an escaped c...onvict crept aboard the Christina ? Did he overhear Libby's talk with Caleb-her giving away of a life-or-death secret?Sick at heart, Libby knows she has failed her friends. Not only has she risked Jordan's safety, she has endangered the mission to rescue his family. Will she ever be trusted to work in the Underground Railroad?
