Train to Midnight


Malaika and her brother Sammy have been arguing about the Underground Railroad when they are caught in an afternoon storm.  The crash of a falling branch sweeps them back into the lives of Malaika and Samson who are escaping slavery along the Underground Railroad.  Separated from their mother, the pair have made their way across the Ohio River to the home of a Quaker couple.  But there is still a long road ahead of them, fraught with peril.
