Freedom Calls: Journey of a Slave Girl

Kem Knapp Sawyer

  • Freedom Calls: Journey of a Slave Girl

Freedom Calls: Journey of a Slave Girl tells the story of Louisa’s escape from slavery and of her friendship with Abby, the daughter of an abolitionist newspaper publisher. Both girls take enormous risks to do what they think is right—come what may. They learn that freedom can only be obtained at great expense. This is a historical novel based on a true incident from 1848—the escape of 76 slaves from Washington and their capture aboard the Pearl.

“Kem Sawyer has paid meticulous and painstaking attention to historical detail in her riveting story for young readers…a particularly appropriate and highly recommended addition to school and community library Black History Month collections and reading lists."

Midwest Book Review, Children’s Bookwatch

“Careful research and accurate descriptions make Freedom Calls a must buy for school libraries, as well as parents who wish to encourage children to study our history and grow up without prejudice. Highly recommended.”
