Kinndle Kids Daily Deal {11/17}: Promises to the Dead

Today's Kindle Kids Daily Deal is Promises to the Dead by Mary Downing Hahn. Get the ebook for $1.99 today only (regular price $6.99).

From Amazon:

When Jesse went down to the marsh on that fateful day, he expected to find a turtle for terrapin soup. Instead, he comes across a dying slave woman who makes Jesse promise he’ll take her young son, Perry, to a relative in Baltimore. Aiding and abetting a slave is against the law, and it also goes against everything Jesse has been taught to believe. But he can’t break a promise to the dead, and, more important, he has to follow what he knows in his heart to be right.
The journey is more treacherous than Jesse ever imagined. At the crossroads of a country about to plunge into civil war, danger lurks around every corner. Will these boys on the run ever find a safe haven?

Promises to the Dead is appropriate for ages 10 and up.
