Kindle Daily Deal, Promises to the Dead, by Mary Downing Hahn

When Jesse went down to the marsh on
that fateful day, he expected to find a turtle for terrapin soup.
Instead, he comes across a dying slave woman who makes Jesse promise
he’ll take her young son, Perry, to a relative in Baltimore. Aiding and
abetting a slave is against the law, and it also goes against everything
Jesse has been taught to believe. But he can’t break a promise to the
dead, and, more important, he has to follow what he knows in his heart
to be right.
     The journey is more treacherous than Jesse
ever imagined. At the crossroads of a country about to plunge into civil
war, danger lurks around every corner. Will these boys on the run ever
find a safe haven?
I love historical fiction, and this book sounds fantastic.  It is $1.99 for today only on Amazon (Kindle).  You don’t have to own a Kindle to read it.  You can download one of Kindle’s free reading apps for your phone, tablet, or computer.
