t the chance to compete against some of the greatest jockeys in the North. But horse racing can be a nasty business when the stakes are so high. And Gabriel learns soon enough that being freed is not the same as being free. Not when your skin is black.Now Gabriel has more on his mind than winning the race. He has to keep his horse safe and fend off trouble. More than ever Gabriel misses his father, who has gone off to fight with the Union Army. Who else can he trust?In the second book in her historical fiction trilogy set during the Civil War, author Alison Hart continues to explore the complex relationships between black and white, slave and master, and North and South.
