Inspired by a true story from Oregon, 1840, Phillip Margolin fast forwards to 1860, where slaves Worthy and his daugher, Roxanna, live at the mercy of Caleb Barbour, refusing to give them their freedom. Young lawyer Matt Penny and gold digger Sharon Hill connect the stories of three important trials in this newly formed state of Oregon. With twists, legal suspense, and well-chiseled characters typical of Margolin's typical mysteries, this tale dives into the realm of historical fiction, a project three decades in the making!
