With a job as a litigation associate at the prestigious law firm of Summer and White, she spends her time in Boston’s financial district representing wealthy corporate and individual clients resolving their business disputes. She lives in a beautiful home in a nearby suburb surrounded by other beautiful homes filled with friendly neighbors. She goes to parties. She goes shopping. She has her nails perfectly manicured and her hair done just right. She lives her life exactly as she planned it and that is how she believes everything will continue. Until it changes.When the firm is called on to act, pro bono, as counsel in a criminal law matter, Elizabeth suddenly finds herself in the unfamiliar role of a criminal defense attorney. Representing Ruby Anderson, a battered woman who has been accused of the murder of her husband, Elizabeth walks into a side of the legal world, and the domestic world of abusive relationships, that at first seems unfamiliar to her. Despite attempting to retain an objective distance from her client, Elizabeth quickly finds herself entangled in Ruby’s life and family. As Ruby’s trial date draws near, Elizabeth learns that she can excel in the criminal law system as well as should could in civil court, and that the life of an abuse victim is not as unfamiliar as it might have seemed.Inspired in part by the March 31, 1776 “Remember the Ladies” letter from Abigail Adams to John Adams.
