About the book:
By Freedom’s Light by Elizabeth O’Maley
Thirteen-year-old Sarah Caldwell is an unhappy Indiana pioneer. She misses her sister, Rachel, who stayed behind in North Carolina. Worse yet, their widowed father has married a Quaker schoolteacher, whom Sarah discovers is a secret abolitionist! When Rachel and her family arrive for a visit, Sarah is overjoyed. Rachel brings Polly, an enslaved girl, with her. As Polly and Sarah become friends, Sarah questions her original beliefs about slavery. Soon she is faced with a life-altering decision.
