"When a black couple, Angel and Joseph Ambrose, walk into attorney Noah Richards's office on a November morning, his life changes. Richards is struggling to keep his practice afloat in an economically depressed logging town in the foothills of the Cascade Mountains of Washington State. Under the present circumstances, the last case he should take is a difficult wrongful death suit." "Angel Ambrose is convinced that her young son Jordan died because of a local hospital's neglect. Outraged over his death, she commits herself to making sure the hospital pays for its wrongdoing, and she persuades Richards to at least look into her case. What he reads in the hospital records shocks him and convinces him to take up Angel's cause."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc. All Rights Reserved
