Stone Wall Freedom: The Islander
Written by: David Lee Tucker
Sea captain Alexander Hawkins has
returned to his Block Island (RI) home after an extended voyage, and
little has gone well in his absence. The family farm is struggling and
his sweetheart greets him with cool contempt. In addition, the political
atmosphere in the spring of 1776 is charged, as the American colonies
scramble against the British.

Many Sons of Liberty insist that freedom from British rule means
freedom for all men, black and white. Yet many patriots wonder about
losing their profits without slaves. Who will survive and what will it
take to rekindle Alexander's passion to continue the fight for slave
freedom?

"Stone Wall Freedom--The Islander," the second book in Tucker's
trilogy, picks up the threads of the original story and weaves a new one
all its own. Drawn from the Block Island landscape, this historical
fiction was written "as a tribute to the microcosm of the struggle for
freedom that the men and women, both free and slave, faced on this
blessed little land."
