Tad, a very clever slave boy, comes of age as the American Civil War intrudes on the tropical sea islands of South Carolina. But his desire to better himself is obstructed by the color of his skin, until Northern soldiers force the evacuation of white plantation owners, setting 10,000 slaves free in a single day. These circumstances seem like a dream, but the newly freed slaves have no money, no education, no leadership, and little hope for the future. This is the story of how a boy grows into a man facing the horrors of war and unimaginable prejudice - fighting the urge to run from the shame of his family and his past - to become the leader and deliverer of thousands of freed slaves. Award- winning author Peter Leavell explores new territory in the familiar literary backdrop of the Civil War, forging an unprecedented tale of tragedy and triumph based on true events.

Review:

In this sweeping saga of one of the most stirring times in our nation’s history, Peter Leavell brings alive the stories of unsung American heroes that should never be forgotten. Gideon’s Call is exactly the kind of historical novel I love.”
— Donna Fletcher Crow, author of Glastonbury, A Novel of The Holy Grail
