The Long Walk: Slavery to Freedom is a riveting, antebellum, historical novel about the social injustice and the enslavement of an intact family, taken from Virginia to Kentucky, to be sold and forcefully separated on the auction block. The saga follows two of the family members from the auction to a farm where they endure a brutal environment. The Long Walk: Slavery to Freedom details the lives of the enslaved and how they were bought, sold, resold, and abused. The protagonist, unwilling to accept her fate, and that of her son, becomes a freedom seeker who choreographs an escape that eventually connects her to the Underground Railroad which puts her on the path to freedom.
