A breathtaking journey marrying a slave girl's Underground journey in the 1800s with Jennifer's present-day discoveries, Rooster Street is a story on multiple levels of discrimination, abandonment and violence; fortitude, love, and final celebration. Jennifer Pryor's grandmother dies leaving a box full of history behind. At the same time Jen, a young lawyer, is working with her firm tying up the estate of an historic home on Cape Cod. Baffled to find another box there filled with memorabilia and old photographs-and an identical picture in both boxes-she and Noah, the town's historian, go on a hunt in Boston for the mysterious Rooster Street. In 1828 Althea Kieron is born on a plantation in South Carolina, of a white master and his slave. At 16 Althea is in love with the new master's son, and the two make a daring escape plan for her on the Underground Railroad. Terrified, she is passed from one stop to another, always in danger, till things take a horrifying turn.
