Meet This Author Tomorrow Night!!!

Like most public defenders, Rachel Stein is an adrenaline junkie. Inspired by the case of a battered woman who stabbed her husband to death, she devotes herself tirelessly to the woman’s defense. It’s the kind of case every public defender was born for. The case could change the course of law, but it ends up changing the course of Rachel’s life instead.

A story of resourcefulness in a treacherously unstable world where bad things happen to good people, The Furthest City Light illuminates a journey of hope and revelation for a woman who cares too much.

Jackie says:
"This book is about Rachel, a public defender in Boulder, CO.  She's passionate about the law and about her clients, but never as much as her latest client, Emily, who stabbed her husband with scissors after years of abuse.  It's clear to Rachel that Emily is innocent, and that this case might just make the 1986 Colorado courts finally accept the concept of battered woman syndrome.  It is a long and passionate fight, a full half of the book.  The second half of the book deals with Rachel decompression after the trial, which involves heading for civil war torn Nicaragua to help rebuild in the Sandinista villages, following a different kind of justice.  This is a fascinating tale of a woman trying to find peace with herself and her world.  Deep emotion and vivid description make this a fantastic read and an impressive debut novel."

Tomorrow, Thursday, February 28, 2013, at 7:30 pm at our Historic Lodo Store, Jeanne Winer will be be reading from and signing her debut novel The Furthest City Light.
