Return to the American Revolution in this blistering conclusion to the trilogy that began with the bestselling National Book Award Finalist Chains and continued with Forge, which The New York Times called "a return not only to the colonial era but to historical accuracy."
As the Revolutionary War rages on, Isabel and Curzon have narrowly escaped Valley Forge - but their relief is short-lived. Before long they are reported as runaways, and the awful Bellingham is determined to track them down. With purpose and faith, Isabel and Curzon march on, fiercely determined to find Isabel's little sister Ruth, who is enslaved in a Southern state - where bounty hunters are thick as flies.
Heroism and heartbreak pave their path, but Isabel and Curzon won't stop until they reach Ruth, and then freedom, in this grand finale to the acclaimed Seeds of America trilogy from Laurie Halse Anderson.

Excellent conclusion to the series!
A difficult topic (slavery during the Am. Rev)
For the third time, Ms. Anderson has scored. I was excited to read the last book in this trilogy, and I was not disappointed.
The end - but I can't say more without giving it away. Suffice it to say, this was a good ending to a good book (or really, set of three books).
If you are interested in the American Revolution or slavery, I strongly recommend all three of these books - Chains, Forges, and Ashes.
