Meet Addy Walker, a courageous nine-year-old girl growing up during the Civil War. When her poppa and brother are sold to another plantation, Addy and her mother take the terrible risk of escaping to freedom in the North. To get away safely, they must leave Addy's baby sister behind in the slave quarters; her cries could cost them their freedom. As Addy and Momma slowly build a new life in Philadelphia and struggle to bring their family together again, Addy comes to realize a powerful truth: freedom has great costs.

I love American Girl

I have been a long time collector of the American Girl dolls and I just love the story of all of the Historical Characters. I am almost 22 years old and I still love reading the books. Addy's story was so heartwarming and so sweet she and her family never gave up on freedom and still keeping their faith to be going on the dreams of being together.
