Description


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.
