attorney Sarah Woolson flouts proper Victorian notions of feminine behavior in
this nineteenth-century answer to Legally Blonde. Though her own law firm
barely tolerates her, and her mother begs her to settle down, Sarah sets out to
prove herself in her first criminal trial.
When a woman
whose husband has died in a sweatshop fire asks for Sarah’s help in finding the
culprit, she insists on taking the case against her boss’ wishes. Even more
scandalously, when several people affiliated with a charity hospital die within
a few days of each other, Sarah puts herself in the middle of the puzzle,
racing against time to find the killer and defending a Chinese man accused of
murder. Imagine, a woman lawyer in court! Download and start listening now!
