Alvin has been followed home by slander, and finds still more of it at home. He knows what the achievement of his life should be, but his pupils aren't capable of learning the skills he tries to teach them -- except his brother Calvin, who is too envious to listen. Driven out again, Alvin returns to Hatrack River and unmasks servants of the Unmaker. Slander is the main theme, but slavery and justice are also considered. Can young mixed-race Arthur be dragged back to his evil master/father because the law says so? Card puts goodness above law.
