Summary
When Adisa Johnson, an African-American lawyer, visits hometown Campbellton, Ga., after her aunt suffers a stroke, she doesn't expect to stay for long. However, after being fired from her law firm, she begins exploring job opportunities in the area. When she hears that a young African-American boy is in a coma after being shot by a white police officer, her initial reaction is sympathy, though she has no desire to get involved. But then a twist will lead her to the trial in the least expected way: as defense attorney for the police officer. Adisa is a selfless protagonist conflicted about representing the officer but dedicated to her principles. The policeman, Luke Nelson, spends a lot of time insisting on his innocence and very little time expressing remorse for almost ending an innocent boy's life, making it difficult to empathize with him. Whitlow (A House Divided) gives a powerful message about the need for people of all colors and backgrounds to come together in times of trouble, but he raises questions about racism and human nature that are never fully explored.
