Synopsis

They told him his best friend wasn't human.  Robert's father assisted the Underground Railroad.  His mother adamantly opposed abolition.  His best friend was a black boy named William Henry.  As a nation neared its boiling point, Robert found himself in his own painful conflict.  The one thing he couldn't do was nothing at all.  William Henry is a coming-of-age story about a 12-year-old boy--and an entire country--that comes face to face with the evils of society, even within the walls of the church.  In the safety of an uplifting friendship, he discovers the hope of a brighter day.
