Wow! I gave this book two stars because it was not an entertaining read. Most of the time I was upset at how the judge, lawyers, and just about everyone was prejudiced. I suppose that was normal in Birmingham in 1921 but not today (I think). So it is difficult for most of us today to condone the actions of that time. I will admit that the author did a marvelous job in her research. She included much detail about the history and background of the times. Though I gave the book two stars, it should be a great read for students of the early years of the 19th century.

Jennifer The South was very prejudice against Catholics then and a lot of that still goes on now.

Amy "...for students of the early years of the 20th century", not the 19th.
