This is the story of what happened one year when two New Yorkers arrived in a small Kansas town called Galatea and stumbled into that community's dark history of racism and greed. It is the story of the brutal lynching of an albino black man named Eric Johnson and the young white girl who accused him of rape. And, finally, it is the story of the inexorable hold that time past exerts over time present and the long shadow cast by ancient hurts, hatreds and secrets.
The action builds to a heart-stopping, unexpected climax...
