description

When an ambitious female lawyer becomes the victim of harassment, she must decide what''s more important: her family''s safety or the rights she''s fighting for.

Set in Alabama in the early ''80s, Family Law follows a young lawyer, Lucia, who is making a name for herself at a time when a woman in a courtroom is still a rarity. She''s been the recipient of threats and vandalism for her work extracting women from painful and sometimes dangerous marriages, but her own happy marriage has always felt sheltered from the work she does. When her mother''s pending divorce brings teenaged Rachel into Lucia''s orbit, Rachel finds herself smitten--not just with Lucia, but with the change Lucia represents. Rachel is outspoken and curious, and she chafes at the rules her mother lays down as the bounds of acceptable feminine behaviour. In Lucia, Rachel sees the potential for a new path into womanhood. But their unconventional friendship takes them both to a crossroads. When a moment of violence--a threat made good--puts Rachel in danger, Lucia has to decide how much her work means to her and what she''s willing to sacrifice to keep moving forward.

Written in alternating voices from Lucia and Rachel''s perspectives, Family Law is a fresh take on what the advancement of women''s rights looks like on the ground to the ordinary women and girls who imagine a world redefined. Addressing mother-daughter relationships and what roles we can play in the lives of women who aren''t our family, the novel examines how we shape each other and how we make a difference. The funny, strong and yet tender-hearted female leads of Family Law illuminate a new kind of Southern women''s fiction--atmospheric, rich, and with quietly surprising twists and nuances all its own.
GIN PHILLIPS is the award-winning author of Fierce Kingdom and The Well and the Mine. She lives in Birmingham, Alabama, with her family.
