Publisher's Description

One choice will change Libby’s life forever.

Libby Norstad’s life has changed to anything but ordinary. In 1857, when she comes to live on the Christina, her father’s steamboat, Libby’s curiosity ensnares her in a mystery. What is the closely held secret of Caleb, the cabin boy who seems determined to make her life miserable? And how can Jordan, a fugitive slave, possibly reach safety and freedom?

The night is dark. As three men race to the riverfront, bloodhounds follow their tracks. Through her journey to compassion, will Libby become a freedom seeker?

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.

    "At the shore of the river, Libby stepped down, expecting to find ice. Instead, cold water rose around her feet. Suddenly she yelped. Hush! came the quick warning from above. Libby leaped from the water to a foothold in the bank. Just then a voice cried out. Over here! a man shouted. Get him! called another. The slave catchers! Like the cold water, terror washed over Libby."

    Twelve-year-old Libby Norstad lives on a steamboat, where her father is the captain. There is only one other kid her age: Caleb, the cabin boy. As much as Libby wants to be friends, Caleb always seems to be hiding something. When a fugitive slave comes aboard, Libby starts guessing what Caleb is keeping back. Should she tell on him? Should she help him?

    Genre: historical, adventure. For those 14 and under. Issues dealt with: slavery, equal treatment, helping others.

    "Escape into the Night" mentions God only about 3-5 times. The characters say that they do what they do because of what they believe. This story will certainly not help strengthen your relationship with God, although it will entertain. This is book 1 of The Freedom Seekers series. The other books are "Race for Freedom," "Midnight Rescue," "The Swindler's Treasure," "Mysterious Signal," and "The Fiddler's Secret."

    "Do not merely listen to the word, and so deceive yourselves. Do what it says." James 1:22 (NIV)

    I've always loved Lois Walfrid Johnson's books and these were no exception. I love every minute of them and I think she did a great job not only having excitement and action, but also a message, and some awesome historic facts!
