Shedding Grace: The Story of a Young American's Search for Justice
Trafford Publishing, 2006 - 216
It is the summer of 1769 and the Americans begin to push their conflict with the crown to the point of no return. Jonathan Hamrick, the son of a prominent Boston merchant, has begun his career in the law and is passionately committed to the colonial causes of liberty and freedom. When he is called upon to rescue the failing family business, he finds himself unwillingly engaged in a slave trading venture, which his ailing father believed to be their last hope for financial salvation. He makes a voyage to determine for himself the true nature of this human trafficking and what he learns causes him to question the most fundamental ethical assumptions of his time. Upon his return he finds the town in turmoil and is thrust once again, headlong, into the cauldron of confrontation that would quickly lead to war. But, what had once seemed almost self-evident to him was suddenly not so simple and he was no longer sure what was right or what he believed.
