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.

Good book, poor reader.
This is a book delving into race relations with a unique christian twist.
Though content is good and characters are well developed, the reader does a poor job in every aspect necessary to distinguish and develop those characters. We almost stopped the book due to the readers utter lack oif ability to bring the characters to life and do the author's work justice,
but decided to hang in there. Glad we did, but beware, the reader throws his lines away at every opportunity. Not sure how this reader was selected for a Robert Whitlow book.
You will have to work around the reader too enjoy this books worthy content--he is actually a distraction.

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!
