Publisher's Summary

In a small Georgia town where racial tensions run high and lives are at stake, can one lawyer stand up for justice against the tide of prejudice on every side?
Adisa Johnson, a young African American attorney, is living her dream of practicing law with a prestigious firm in downtown Atlanta. Then a split-second mistake changes the course of her career.
Left with no other options, Adisa returns to her hometown, where, a few days earlier, a white police officer shot an unarmed black teen who is now lying comatose in the hospital.
Adisa is itching to jump into the fight as a special prosecutor but feels pulled to do what she considers unthinkable - defend the officer.
As the court case unfolds, everyone in the small community must confront their own prejudices. Caught in the middle, Adisa also tries to chart her way along a path complicated by her budding relationship with a charismatic young preacher who leads the local movement demanding the police officer answer for his crime.
This highly relevant and gripping novel challenges us to ask what it means to forgive while seeking justice, to pursue reconciliation while loving others as ourselves.

Great and very relevant book

This was a great book! My wife discovered Robert Whitlow years ago and we have enjoyed his story telling ever since.
This is the best book I've listened to recently! The Lord is not hidden in this novel as in too many Christian novels. His presence in the every day lives of the characters is true to life.

Also the racial attitudes and prejudices of the characters are frustratingly real and deep rooted. These are not racists, but just ordinary people seeking the truth about the events which open the book.

It so captured my heart that I listened every time I got a chance! Better than tv!

Fair to middling

The first hour and last hour were really the most informative portions of this book. The story line is something you read about every day in the news unfortunately. I am not a fan of the narrator at all. He is very boring. I really to make myself finish listening to this.
