Hannah Jones knows little more than the evils of slavery. She yearns for freedom for herself and her children. But in Charleston, SC, in the 1850s, freedom is impossible for a black woman.

Then she meets Robert Smalls, who doesn't think like anyone else she ever met before. And he may be daring and gallant enough to attempt the impossible - escape.

If they succeed, they will win freedom for their family and friends. If they fail, the Confederate army would hang Robert as a pirate, and would kill his whole family. Or worse, send them back to slavery.
