Unlocking Freedoms Door by K. P. Fox

Unlocking Freedom’s Door

Numerous brave and dedicated people—some famous, but many unknown—shaped our great nation. Discover the heartwarming and captivating story of  Mary Peake, a genuine heroine, as she teaches the slave children of Hampton, eludes brutal patrols who are in constant pursuit, gets caught up in early conflicts of the Civil War, and strives to overturn slavery itself.

Inspired by actual events and people, follow the hardships and struggles of an enslaved population, the sacrifices and horrors of war, and the challenges faced by a president determined to heal a fractured nation. Unlocking Freedom’s Door weaves together historical fact and fiction, culminating with the first public reading of the Emancipation Proclamation in the South.
