This book, based on a true story, takes place during the civil war, when a bunch of mill workers, young and old, are taken from a southern mill, and shipped of to Georgia. The main character, Hannalee, promised her mother she would return. And so we follow Hannalee on an amazing journey as she gets bound as a servant, escapes and flees to find her brother, Jem. together, Hannalee and Jem travel back to their home. This story was touching, and showed the unfair treatment of the mill workers taken from their homes, I found it very memorable.
