To Kill A Mockingbird

In a dusty Southern town during the Depression a white woman accuses a black man of rape. Though the man is obviously innocent, a guilty verdict is such a foregone conclusion that no lawyer will step forward to defend him.

While his compassionate defense costs him many friendships, it earns him what he values most, the respect and admiration of his two motherless children.
