In this final book of Carol E. Williams’ mid-19th century trilogy, something strong and certain is ignited in the young Emma Field as she accompanies a former slave to a new home in Canada and discovers the power of liberty, forgiveness and the ancestors. Guided by a mighty Irishman establishing a new life for former slaves in Canada, a steadfast Quaker reformer, and a wise and fiery matriarch of the displaced Seneca nation, Emma confronts her past and finds her way to a future filled with purpose and love.
In Emma Field, Book II, the young Canadian heroine of Book I has left home and now continues her adventures in the Hudson River Valley of New York State. Arriving as a teacher at the Nine Partners Boarding School, Emma soon becomes aware of the social inequalities of mid-19th century America. She is inspired by reformers Elizabeth Cady Stanton and Lucretia Mott at the first Women’s rights convention in Seneca Falls. She then daringly assists the Quakers involved with freeing slaves on the Underground Railroad.
