Daniel Cumberland was born free in Massachusetts, but his dreams died the night he was kidnapped and sold into slavery. It is during the Civil War war and people of color are being sold into slavery even if they are free. Daniel is rescued, but he is a changed man. He has lost all hope and is sort of drifting. When he is asked to join the Loyal League, the covert organization of the Black spies, he seizes the opportunity for revenge.
An Unconditional Freedom
The Loyal League 3
When he is paired with Janeta, a double agent, he is aggravated by her being headstrong and too observant. In the beginning he was not aware that she was a double agent, but soon learned she was working for the the Confederacy and funneling information back that was harming the Union Army. As they embark on the mission to intercept Jefferson Davis and thwart Europe’s meddling into the war, she has misgivings about betraying Daniel as she has developed feelings for him. Daniel wants revenge and plans to kill Davis. She wants to prevent this at all cost.
Will Daniel succeed in his mission or will he find another way to help the Union Army? Will Janeta come to realize her misguided loyalty to the Confederacy?
The book is a well-written story of the hardship that the people of the South endured during the Civil War, especially the people of color.
I thoroughly enjoyed the book and highly recommend it.
