As the 1850s come to a close, Glynis Tryon returns to her hometown of Seneca Falls, New York, where she helps defend the celebrated abolitionist, John Brown, against politically motivated charges of counterfeiting

Blackwell North Amer
The year is 1859. The nation is divided over slavery, with abolitionists spearheading a relentless - and violent - plan of attack. And in Seneca Falls, New York, the federal crime of counterfeiting adds up to a deadly account of deceit, injustice, and murder.
After a year in Springfield, Illinois, Glynis returns home with Emma, her shy, seventeen-year-old niece. Emma's only joy comes from sewing and playing the dulcimer - and little else since her mother died. Glynis hopes that a change of scene will help young Emma's spirits. But as their train journeys from Rochester to Seneca Falls, a passenger is fatally stabbed right before their eyes. Before he dies, the victim hands Glynis a pouch containing a signet ring, a crumpled bank note, and a twenty dollar gold eagle coin.
