The year is 1830 and Jamie Pyke is keeping a deadly secret. Although he is passing as a wealthy white aristocrat in Philadelphian society, Jamie is really a runaway slave, hiding in plain sight, still hunted. But Jamie’s carefully constructed world begins to come apart when his beloved young servant, Pan, whom he has sworn to protect, is kidnapped and sold into slavery in the South.
Tracing the boy to a North Carolina plantation, Jamie risks his life to save Pan from the fate he himself barely escaped as a child. Fortunately, a fearless slave, Sukey, has been mothering the terrified young boy, planning to get him out on the Underground Railroad. As the ruthless slave hunters close in, the three make a run for freedom through the Virginia backwoods and the treacherous Great Dismal Swamp, where they are faced with another desperate choice.
