"A book not about ideas but about the impact of ideas...The ending, which I found both surprising and believable, makes good on all her promises."
THE NEW YORK TIMES BOOK REVIEW
Barbara had given up the law five years before, but she's still "death qualified," still able to defend clients in Oregon who face the death penalty if convicted. And now her lawyer father needs her back in the arena to defend Nell Kendricks, who's been indicted for the murder of her estranged husband, Lucas Kendricks.
But did she do it? After not seeing him for seven years? And where was Lucas all that time? Ultimately, the small-town courtroom is where the truth can be found—if one can spot it through the blinding maelstrom of injustice, confusion, chaos, reality, and love....

I struggled to get the pages to turn all through the book and it won't let me finish the last 3 pages after reading over 1800 pages. I don't know what the problem is, but I am ready to buy a Kindle and forget the nook for good
