“Freedom Journey”: an inspiring story of determination and faith in God’s love in 1852 America. “Freedom Journey” is the creation of published author Larry Craze, a musician, speaker, sign language interpreter, and teacher who has served in training ministries for more than thirty years. In addition to writing and collecting stories, Larry enjoys quilting in his free time.

The world was a much different place in 1852. “Freedom Journey” is the story of the escape of one family from the clutches of slavery in the deepest part of the American South, the bayous of Louisiana, to the promise of a new life of liberty in Toronto, Canada. Travel with Cassie and Theo Jefferson, children dependent upon the kindness and care of total strangers, as they are separated from their Mama Bess. Learn with them about God’s kindness in the provision of food and shelter. Discover the secrets of the Underground Railroad and the faithfulness of the conductors along the way. Find out how the signals, songs, quilts, and safe houses are used to keep the children safe from danger.

Along the way, Cassie and Theo meet friends they will remember for life. They learn the value of work and the importance of obedience. They endeavor to look for messages and begin to understand the meaning of the quilt blocks that lead them in their journey. More importantly, they discover that there is a God who loves them and wants to answer the many prayers that are offered for and by them. In doing so, they find freedom from physical slavery, and through the presentation of the Gospel story, they find a relationship with the God of eternity and find spiritual freedom as well.

Published by Christian Faith Publishing, Larry Craze’s new book is an engrossing depiction of the courage, determination, and faith embodied in the former slaves who sought freedom and the countless men and women who made their journeys possible.
