Summary

Roscoe has set his sights on a new type of power spreading at the start of the 20th century: electricity. But when his wife, Marie, inherits her father's failing farm, Roscoe uses his skills as an electrician to siphon energy from the state, ushering in a period of bounty and happiness.
Then everything changes. A young man is electrocuted on their land. Roscoe is arrested for manslaughter, and he must now carve out a place in a violent new world.
