- We can order this
Befriended by twins Sam and Lily, the time travellers witness horrific truths of plantation life: whippings, beatings and families being torn apart. After Lily is sold to another plantation in Galveston, they devise with Sam a plan to rescue her. Their race against time takes them through a spooky graveyard and over a river teeming with alligators, with vicious hounds in close pursuit.
With the absorbing pace and historic detail that Mr. Barrington's Mysterious Trunk fans have come to expect, Cuate leads her protagonists, and her young readers, to the first Juneteenth.
