"The year is 1862, and the Civil War rages. On a Virginia tobacco plantation, another kind of battle soon begins. There, Cassius Howard, a skillful carpenter and slave, risks everything--punishment, sale to a cotton plantation, even his life--to learn the truth concerning the murder of Emoline, a freed black woman who secretly taught him to read and once saved his life. It is clear that no one cares about her death in the midst of a brutal and hellish war. No one but Cassius, who braves horrific dangers to avenge her loss"--Cover, p. 4.
