Author Jennifer Hudson Taylor shares an intriguing story of faith, friendship, courage and love in “Path of Freedom,” part of the Quilts of Love series from Abingdon Press.

Flora and her young sister Irene will accompany Bruce Millikan as they spirit an escaped slave couple to safety in the north.
