When Mariah and her young brother Zeke are suddenly freed from slavery, they set out on Sherman's long march through Georgia during the Civil War. Mariah wants to believe that the brutalities of slavery are behind them forever and that freedom lies ahead. When she meets Caleb, an enigmatic young black man also on the march, Mariah soon finds herself dreaming not only of a new life, but of true love as well. But even hope comes at a cost, and as the treacherous march continues toward the churning waters of Ebenezer Creek, Mariah's dreams are as vulnerable as ever.

This book has a lot of emotion, with death and sorrow, this book includes the history of slavery, and the lives lost in the process. Many people have been affected, and the lives lost will always be remembered.

This was a journey into a Civil War event that I was unaware of, which made it very interesting. Normally, a love story would seem out of place, but it actually enhances the historical story and gives it added depth and urgency. The ending was heartbreaking, but this is an important story that needs to be experienced.

An insightful novel about a little-known Civil-War-era tragedy. This one will appeal to fans of Ruta Sepetys' Salt to the Sea.
