Chains By Laurie Halse Anderson
A Project by Avery nagengast
She gave the information to the Patriots who tell her a password, so that if she would ever need to give them any more information about Mr. Lokton she could use it. The password was Ad Astra. The next day Mr. Lokton was arrested, but was realeased a few days later. He went into hiding soon after.
Isabel starts hurling insults and questions toward Mrs. Lokton, when all of a sudden Becky opens the front door and yells at Isabel to run away. Isabel fails in an attempt to run away and is put on trial and gets an I branded on her cheek for her attempt.
Isabel decides to take food scraps to Curzon and his fellow prisoners, pretending to be his sister called Sal. Months pass and it is winter. The brittish queen Anne's birthday approaches and the Loktons were invited to the ball being held in her honor. Isabel had been punished for visiting Curzon in the prison. Mrs. Lokton unintentionally revealed to Isabel that they still owned Ruth because of her illness, and was being kept at another one of their estates. Isabel escapes from the Loktons house and make it to the prison where Curzon was being kept. She escapes with an almost-dead Curzon who can barely stand on his own two feet.
They then, steal a rowboat and go off in search of Ruth.
