Piper Huguley (Author)
Description"Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. 6 In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths." Proverbs 3:5-6 Oberlin, Ohio - 1844 Lawrence Stewart is a rare man. Raised with his grandmother's Miami Indian tribe, he's a Negro with brown skin, and has consistently walked between two worlds most of his life. He devotes his time and study to becoming a lawyer, fully intending to obtain justice for the ousted Miami Indians. No Negro man has accomplished these things before, but he is not daunted. He studies for his exams as he rides circuit through the backwoods of Ohio, handing out justice to people who cannot easily reach a courthouse. His life is perfectly set until one June day.... Aurelia "Realie" Baxter made her way from enslavement in Georgia to the free land Lake Huron in Ohio. Far from happy as a slave doing the bidding of a woman cooped up in a house all day, Realie is a bona fide tomboy with a special gift with horses. Now, she is so close to freedom in Canada, she can smell it, but her plans are interrupted when Lawrence shoots her...by mistake.... Lawrence cannot study encumbered with the care of an enslaved woman, but he's responsible for her injury... Realie wants to get to Canada, but Lawrence won't let her get away in trying to help her... One chance meeting can change your life from what you thought you wanted....to what you really need.
