Product Description

Set in 1857, a group of children work together, despite their differences, to make a change and live out their faith.
In Race for Freedom, a slave trader is hot on the kids' trail, forcing the Freedom Seekers to realize that because of a fugitive slave law, Jordan can be taken back into slavery even from a free northern state, and that if caught with a fugitive slave, Captain Norstad can lose the Christina. As they race to St. Paul the stakes high and the kids are all forced to make a choice . . . can they live the courage that offers life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness to every person?

Publisher's Description

Jordan escaped slavery once. Must he escape again?

Ashadowy figure lurks on the dark riverfront near the Christina. Libby is sure that it must be the cruel slave trader Riggs, who has vowed that no slave of his will ever escape alive. Does Riggs suspect that the runaway Jordan is hiding on her pa’s steamboat? Track Libby, Caleb, and Jordan in the second book of the Freedom Seeker’s series as they race to keep Jordon free from the clutches of slavery.

Libby and Caleb scan the crowds of passengers bound for the Minnesota Territory. Has Riggs slipped by and boarded the Christina unnoticed?

From the golden age of steamboats, the rush of immigrants to new lands, and the dangers of the Underground Railroad come true-to-life stories of courage, integrity, and suspense in the Freedom Seekers series.

    The Synopsis:

    "A shadowy figure lurks on the dark riverfront near the Christina. Libby is sure that it must be the cruel slave driver Riggs, who has vowed that no slave of his will ever escape alive. Does Riggs suspect that the runaway Jordan is hiding on her pa's steamboat?

    Track Libby, Caleb, and Jordan in the second book of the Freedom Seekers series as they race to keep Jordan free from the clutches of slavery."

    My Review:

    I have always liked books about the Underground Railroad, and this book was an excellent story. Race for Freedom is book 2 in the Freedom Seekers series and I would suggest reading them in order, I say this because this is the first book I have read in the series and I seriously wish I would have read book 1!

    However, just looking at the storyline, Race for Freedom has very good, realistic characters. The story was full of Christian morals and a little girl even comes to know the Lord as her personal Lord and Savior. There is some tense action, but nothing real graphic or bloody.

    There are lessons throughout the book as well. Like not jumping to conclusions before you are sure of the facts. And not to just trust everyone you see because they look friendly.

    I think Freedom Seekers would make a pretty good read-aloud series for the whole family. And again, I recommend reading them in order! I look forward to getting the rest of the series and finding out what happens next with Libby, Caleb, and Jordan.

    "I received this book from Moody Publishers for the purpose of this review. All comments and opinions are my own."
