Corbin Gage can stand up to anyone . . . But his own divided house will bring him to his knees.

Corbin, a longtime legal champion for the downtrodden, is slowly drinking himself into the grave. His love for “mountain water” has cost him his marriage to the godliest woman he knows, ruined his relationship with his daughter, Roxy, and reduced the business at his small Georgia law firm to a level where he can barely keep the bill collectors at bay. But it isn’t until his son, Ray, threatens to limit Corbin’s time with his grandson that Corbin begins to acknowledge he might have a problem.

Despite the mess that surrounds his personal life and against the advice of everyone he knows, Corbin takes on a high-stakes tort case on behalf of two boys who have contracted non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma due to an alleged chemical exposure. The defendant, a fertilizer company, is the largest employer in the area. The lawsuit becomes a tornado that sucks Corbin, Ray, and Roxy into an increasingly deadly vortex. Equally intense pressure within the family threatens to destroy, once and for all, the thin threads that connect them.

Corbin must find the strength to stand up to his personal demons. Justice for two dying boys depends on it . . . his family depends on it.

“Fans of John Grisham will find much to like here.”

Review by Prosperity
This book was about a family of lawyers (dad, son, daughter) and a case against a big corporation in town. Based on the description of the book I read, I had expected some suspense or action or excitement but really the book is more of a drama in which not much actually happens. The father struggles with alcoholism which is a big part of the story, possibly the main story line. That part was semi-interesting to learn about. I didn't feel the characters were fully developed into people I cared about, one of the characters I really didn't like and couldn't tell if the character was supposed to be likable or not. I am perfectly fine with drama or just regular fiction stories in which not much happens - but I at least need to feel a connection to the characters, which was not the case with this book. This book did remind me a bit of The Litigators by John Grisham which was also about lawyers and didn't seem to have too much of a plot or characters that I connected with. Robert Whitlow definitely puts more of a Christian spin into the book than Grisham and it doesn't contain any bad language or inappropriate scenes. On the flip side, I feel that John Grisham does write about law and lawyers better than Whitlow. All in all - this isn't a book I'd recommend.
