About the Book
Abigailís husband is lost, presumed dead, in the great fire that destroys their home in colonial West Jersey. She refuses to believe he is dead.

Without a man to support her, Abigail struggles to provide for herself and her baby, taking in laundry, spinning, weaving, sewing. Then she takes in Tilly, a young orphan girl.

While gathering thistle they meet Caesar, a young runaway slave. After feeding him in secret for several days, they decide to help him escape to New France, where he can be free. If they can find a way to get Caesar north of York City, to the Hudson River, their friend Tamaqua, a Lenape warrior, can help them. But they have to get there first.

How will a woman and a girl, traveling with a baby, get a fugitive slave from Burlington, West Jersey to the Hudson? Then, how will they make their way through a hostile frontier, made more dangerous by inter-tribal warfare?

Abigailís Tale, Book Two in The Bompeau Family Saga, is the sequel to The Fourth Son.
