Description


What begins with her youthful idealism and intent to amend the "sins" of her blueblood ancestors soon becomes a firestorm of events that includes the activities of a local police "death squad," the vicious rape of a co-worker, an attack on a radical bookstore, Ku Klux Klan threats, friends found to be on the 10 MOST WANTED list, her choice to bear arms, donate large sums of money, and transport explosives for a cadre with increasingly questionable motives. The unrelenting series of events that unfold inextricably land her many years later as a witness in one of the longest sedition trials in US history.

Terrorist or freedom fighter? That becomes the readers question to answer just as it becomes Coleman's question as well.
