Daisy’s Search for Freedom by Betha Schwartz

It’s the 1850s and Daisy, a slave girl from Alabama, is thrilled when her Mama is brought to her plantation to be the new cook. Six Oaks Plantation has been Daisy’s home for years, and the future looks bright now that she and her Mama have been reunited. The happiness doesn’t last, though, when a dangerous encounter with a notorious slave hunter endangers Daisy’s life. She has no choice but to run. Leaving behind everything she has ever known, Daisy strikes out alone on the Underground Railroad.. Daisy’s search for freedom leads her deep into the woods. Along the way she is joined by Simon, a four-year-old boy and his pet kitten. Pursued by dogs, uncertainty, and a slave tracker determined to capture them by any means necessary, Daisy starts to wonder if she will ever be safe again. Does Jesus care about runaway slaves lost in the woods?

My Review

I enjoyed this book. It is geared towards children so it was a straightforward and clean book. Betha Schwartz did not talk about or show the harsher sides of slavery. Instead it was a story of trusting God and of having hope and faith in the midst of hardship

i liked how Daisy prayed about what to do. I think there a lot of good lessons in this story about trusting God in every situation that the reader can learn from.

I recommend this book to family and friends.

I received this book from the publisher to read and give my honest opinion.
