It Happened on Fifth Street - : a Tale of Forgotten Heroes
Author(s): Robyn R. Pearce
1837. America. A hidden letter. Family secrets. And Alf - determined to uncover them.
2015. New Zealand. A forgotten tin trunk. An old coin. And Abigail - searching through ancient documents. What were her ancestors hiding? Something dangerous, it seems.
Suddenly, Abi is hurled back in time. She comes to, sprawled on the floor of a strange room. A boy in old-fashioned clothes is looking at her in shock. He's holding a letter - one she's just read.
They pool their knowledge. What is the Committee of Vigilance? What is Joseph doing at night, down by the Ohio River? Could it be something to do with slavery, the vile trade his father rants about? But nothing adds up.
It takes ages, but at last - a breakthrough. They crack the secret and Alf demands to be included. He's sworn to silence, for lives and livelihoods are in grave danger.
And then, things go bad. Very bad.
It Happened on Fifth Street: a tale of forgotten heroes is a coming-of-age historical novel and the first in the Freedom Series. Enjoy fast-paced adventure based on real events and real people. Meet folks who put their lives on the line, day after day, night after night. Come with Alf and Abi on a journey you'll never forget.
