Book Description

9 Sep 2005 Thorndike Christian Historical Fiction
Will Her Determination to Know the Truth be Worth Its Sacrifices?

With her first trial a dramatic success, Kit Shannon steps out from the protective and guiding hand of her mentor and begins her own law practice. When she is drawn to the defense of a man accused of a crime that crosses racial lines, Kit is unprepared for the prejudice and hatred that is hurled in her direction. A loyal supporter of the law, Kit struggles with the secret role of the very officers who claim to represent justice.

When a new suitor enters her life, Kit finds her heart longing to embrace the love he offers. His gentle care for her provides the support she needs as she faces opposition that continually grows more threatening. Could this be God's leading hand?

5.0 out of 5 stars Continued Goodness 6 Aug 2002
By Allyn - Published on
Peterson and Bell have crafted another highly suspenseful novel. It will definitely keep you asking, "What really happened" and the courtroom scenes are some of the best in the book. Kit is, as always, an inspiring female character with admirable convictions and enviable smarts. Although the "love" side of this book definitely took a back seat to the "courtroom" aspects of it, I thought that that was understandable and realistic. It is hardly like Kit is going to be searching for Mr. Right and evidence for her case at the same time, and it is made clear throughout the series that Kit feels God leading her to practice law at this time in her life... Read this book-and have the third book in this series ready for after you turn the last page of "Angels Flight".

5.0 out of 5 stars A great series! 21 Nov 2001
By A Customer - Published on
This is a really great series judging from the first two books. I love the setting of Los Angeles in the early 1900's, and Kit Shannon is a wonderful character. She is inspiring and strong, but not in a false way (which is how I feel about too many of the women characters in novels today).
All in all, this is a terrific saga and I hope it continues (I know there is at least one more book to come, and I hope it's soon!)

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful 30 Mar 2006
By Julie - Published on
Bell and Peterson have done it again. If the first book in the Shannon Saga didn't make you a fan for life, this one could. Kit's amazing in the courtroom and has a tough life outside of the courtroom. Will Kit stand by and let racism and sexism rule LA, not likely. Ah, but the hows. How can one likable woman get half the city of Los Angeles raving mad at her? How can Kit crack uncooperative witnesses and hostile policemen?

(The plot twists and turns and genuine good old fashioned storytelling make the pages fly by.)

5.0 out of 5 stars They did it again 15 Jan 2004
By CINDY C. - Published on
I hope these two get together again in the future on another project. This book was incredible. The twists and turns leaves you with no choice but to keep reading. The characters are well developed. What I found amazing, was that the same racial tension that does exist today, existed back then. Kit does an admirable job while keeping to her faith and sense of Christian duty. I look forward to Angel of Mercy, which I know won't let me down. I strongly urge that you buy all three of this incredible series.
