Freedom Bound free pdf In this final instalment of Jean Rae Baxter's best-selling trilogy, eighteen-year-old Charlotte arrives in Charleston in the beleaguered Thirteen Colonies to join her new husband Nick. She little expects that she will be searching for him in an alligator-infested South Carolina swamp. During these final months of the American Revolution, she must muster all her wit and courage not just to rescue Nick but also to save the young soldier Elijah from despair and to bring freedom to the pair of teenage runaway slaves she has befriended. Charlotte and her friends meet some of life's most dangerous challenges as they encounter the perils of nature and of war. This novel delivers a frank and realistic picture of the slave system and a powerful account of what was at stake for both white and black Loyalists as they prepared to set forth to find a new home in the country that was soon to be Canada. Like "The Way Lies North" and "Broken Trail", the two novels that preceded it, "Freedom Bound" contains a wealth of carefully researched historical details of one of the least known chapters of our history.
