Sam leaps another 12 years into the future to 1978 and into the body of Larry Stanton, a retired lawyer who was there in 1966 when Abigail Fuller was almost lynched. Abigail has now been charged with murdering Leta Aider, the woman who has always accused her of killing both her daughter and her husband. Aider was found lying in a pool of blood with her throat slit in Abigail's kitchen. Abigail has specifically asked for Stanton to defend her and despite the attorney's frail health, he decides to do so. Al tells Sam that unless he can change history, Abigail will be found guilty and be executed. Sam also meets Abigail's daughter, Sammy Jo, a very intelligent young girl who Al says is likely Sam's daughter. Sam soon realizes that in order to properly defend her, he will also have to deal with the allegations that Abigail also killed her 12 year-old classmate. For the truth, he turns to Abigail's mother who has been institutionalized for many years. Written by garykmcd
