Summary

What price is freedom? What will a man or woman give for passage into a better life, a life free of whatever drove them to escape? Set during the horrors of the American Civil War, "Free Passage" tells the interlinked stories of men, young women and children whose lives are torn apart by the war. Each of them flies in the face of adversity and each triumphs, though in a very different way.

Full contents
