    Before this decisive night, I’d not fully appreciated the subtle line between inspiration and insanity. But now, with all our lives at risk, I found myself navigating that most perilous edge. Only the slave can fathom the price and the cost of freedom: life or death.

    Based on the true story of an unsung American hero, Trouble the Water navigates the rich tributaries of courage, family, betrayal, faith, forgiveness, and redemption. In this inspiring, layered, and ultimately satisfying journey, Robert Smalls -- born enslaved and witness to both great privilege and great suffering --grows up alongside his owner’s daughter and the dangerous son of a firebrand secessionist. At the age of 12, he’s sent to work in Charleston, where he loads ships and learns to pilot a cotton steamer. When the Civil War erupts and the cotton steamer becomes a confederate warship, he seizes a high-risk opportunity to pursue freedom for himself and the woman and children he loves.

    "Before this decisive night, I'd not fully appreciated the subtle line between inspiration and insanity. But now, with all our lives at risk, I found myself navigating that most perilous edge . . . " Based on a true story about risking everything for freedom, Trouble the Water navigates the rich tributaries of courage, family, betrayal, faith, forgiveness, and redemption. Robert Smalls -- born enslaved and witness to both great privilege and great suffering--grows up alongside his owner's daughter and the dangerous son of a firebrand secessionist. At the age of 12, he's sent to work in Charleston, where he loads ships and learns to pilot a cotton steamer. When the Civil War erupts and the cotton steamer becomes a confederate warship, he seizes a high-risk opportunity to pursue freedom for himself and the woman and children he loves. After the war ended Smalls was able to purchase the house in which he and his mother had been enslaved, and he became one of America's first black legislators. His courage, thirst for knowledge, and compassion ultimately changed the lives of untold others, including making SC the first state to legislate public education for all. From his illiterate childhood to his thrilling escape to freedom, from his work to make South Carolina the first state to guarantee public education to his final days on the porch of his family home, Trouble the Water will thrill history lovers, biographical fiction fans, and book group members who appreciate exciting fiction based on the lives of real people. If you liked Invention of Wings, My Name is Mary Sutter, and The Kitchen House, you'll want to read this.
