Description

Tour Philadelphia's Charles Willson Peale Museum through the eyes of a man Peale enslaved in this chilling and richly detailed teen historical novel based on a true story.

One stormy night in 1827, Moses Williams leads his daughter through each room in his former home, now the Charles Willson Peale Museum in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Moses witnessed Peale's money troubles, troubled relationship with his eldest son, and pursuit of many different careers.

Moses himself worked steadily as he fought for his independence through an adolescent friendship turned rivalry with Peale's son, Peale's unfulfilled promises of freedom, and Moses's suspicion that Peale had a hand in his own son's death.
