Product description

Product Description

Orphaned in the cholera epidemic of 1833, Adria Starr was cared for by a slave named Louis, a man who stayed in Springfield, Kentucky, when anyone with means had fled. A man who passed up the opportunity to escape his bondage and instead tended to the sick and buried the dead. A man who, twelve years later, is being sold by his owners despite his heroic actions. Now nineteen, Adria has never forgotten what Louis did for her. She's determined to find a way to buy Louis's freedom. But in 1840s Kentucky, she'll face an uphill battle.

Based partly on a true story, Ann H. Gabhart's latest historical novel is a tour de force. The vividly rendered town of Springfield and its citizens immerse readers in a story of courage, betrayal, and honor that will stick with them long after they turn the last page.

From the Back Cover

One young woman must stand up for freedom--and perhaps find her own in the process.

Orphaned in the cholera epidemic of 1833, Adria Starr was cared for by a slave named Louis, a man who passed up the opportunity to escape his bondage and instead tended to the sick and buried the dead. A man who, twelve years later, is being sold by his owners despite his heroic actions.

Now nineteen, Adria has never forgotten what Louis did for her. She's determined to find a way to buy Louis's freedom. But in 1840s Kentucky, she'll need all of the courage and strength she possesses--and more.


"Sometimes a story is almost too wonderful to be true. Thankfully, the bit of history at the heart of Gabhart's latest novel is absolutely true, providing the perfect platform for a tale of love and generosity that will restore the reader's faith in humankind."--Sarah Loudin Thomas, author of the Appalachian Blessings series

"River to Redemption will both capture your heart and bolster your spirits. Each of the well-drawn characters stepped off the pages and into my heart. A genuinely wonderful book."--Judith Miller, award-winning author of The Chapel Car Bride

"Rich in historical detail, River to Redemption reveals the heartbreaking reality of slavery in the first half of the nineteenth century, one young girl's dangerous quest to end it, and a slave's strong faith in God's timing and providence. You will fall in love with these unforgettable characters."--Jan Drexler, award-winning author of the Journey to Pleasant Prairie series
