This novel for 10 to 14 years old shows a completely different side of Jefferson. Not only was he the father of our country and a number of children, but as history shows, he was a slave owner who had children with one of his slaves, Sally Hemings. This story is how two of his sons and another slave child saw the man, the history surrounding him and their own stories: one son who would be able to escape slavery but leave behind everyone he loves and one who will take a different path and a third child who because of his birth will probably never be free. ~ Reviewed by Jeanette
