Murder wasn't the only crime this town would never forget. Kingdom County, Vermont, is tucked between the Green Mountains and the White Mountains not far from the Canadian border- a small town of proud people with ling memories. When the preacher, Walt Andrews, came to town, he was an outsider, a stranger. He was also a black man. It was the summer James Kinneson turned thirteen. Son of the newspaper owner and younger brother of the town's fiery defense lawyer, James witnessed the shattering events that would tear the town apart - a brutal murder and the trial of a man, not so much for what he might have done, but for what he was. A Stranger in the Kingdom is a powerful drama of passion, prejudice, and innocence suddenly lost--and perhaps found again.
