by | Read by Paul Boehmer

Fiction • 20 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2012

Paul Boehmer’s sophisticated voice works well with Carter’s detailed legal maneuverings, coup d’état plots, and extensive character list of political figures. Abigail Canner is appointed as a clerk in the law office that is defending President Lincoln against impeachment. Portraying an educated black woman during this divisive time, Boehmer gives the story the tension such a unique twist deserves. Despite the many prejudices she faces, Canner wins over many of her detractors with her sharp intuition and sense of right and wrong. Boehmer weaves a host of subplots, including murder and romance, with the story of a country on the verge of splintering if not for its staunch sixteenth president.
