Content descriptions

Summary, etc.: 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. But 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? Mariah's journey to uncover the truth leads her to unexpected people, including George Tole, a recent arrival to town who is fleeing a difficult past of his own. It forces her to confront her own difficult truths. But the conspiracy that resulted in her son's death could run deeper than Mariah had ever imagined, with the fate of Franklin and Tennessee itself hanging in the balance.
