Summary In the years following the Civil War, Mariah Reddick, former slave to Carrie McGavock, the Widow of the South, has quietly built a new life for herself as a midwife to the women of Franklin, Tennessee. When her ambitious, politically minded grown son, Theopolis, is murdered, Mariah, no stranger to loss, finds her world once more breaking apart. How could this happen? Who wanted him dead?
