Kentucky, 1813. Greedy men struggle for power and wealth using the lives of their slaves as weapons and revenge. Phyllis is a young slave with blue eyes and tells the story of her life, her family, her community, their destruction, her survival, and her resurrection as an Abolitionist leader. She learns that good things can be bad and bad things can be good. Based on real events.

"...intellectually stimulating account with the perfect amount of tension and excitement. Contributing to the book's high-quality writing is fascinating description of the techniques and demands of day-to-day life in the times and places of the story it tells."

"Down the River will be an excellent read for anyone with an interest in its era in American history."

"The journey of Phyllis’s life could be an inspiration to some reader that crisis may rise in life but you can’t give up, you definitely can’t stop fighting and ultimately that forgiving may sometimes bring about freedom."
