Jerri Blair about this book: A brilliant young attorney in a rural county in the 1980's is appointed to represent a teenager who wants to obtain an abortion without parental consent, and the case goes from the trial court to the U.S. Supreme Court in days. At the same time he begins representation of a gay man, beloved by the home town public, who is forced to "come out" when he is charged with murder of his gay lover. He fights a swell of negative public opinion as well as the prejudices that were still inherent in the judicial system as he learns to discern the difference between the importance of privacy in choice-making and situations where choice is not available at all.This book is about the arc of change that begins in a rural Southern county that must contend with the prejudice of the past in order to meet the demands of the future. It takes the reader on a journey through both the trial and appellate courts that is realistic and exciting.
