Born into a life of slavery, Ona Judge eventually grew up to be George and Martha Washington’s “favored” slave. When she was told that she was going to be given as a wedding gift to Martha Washington’s granddaughter, Ona made the bold and brave decision to flee to the North, where she would be a fugitive. From her childhood to her time with the Washingtons to her escape to New Hampshire, Never Caught shares an intimate glimpse into the life of a little-known but powerful figure in history, and her brave journey as she fled the most powerful family in the country.
