520    "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"--|cProvided by publisher.
