Two women lived on a lonely plantation named Bizarre - plain and selfish Judith and her sister, the beautiful, hot-blooded Nancy.
It was not surprising that imprisoned in the big old house during the long, hard winters Judith's husband turned to Nancy. For he was a handsome and passionate man and Judith gave him little encouragement. The conflict between the sisters which shook all Virginia raged throughout their lives. Nancy bore Richard a child and it was whispered that she murdered it. The two lovers were tried for infanticide and were defended by two of the greatest lawyers in history, Patrick Henry & John Marshall.

She had after all, her secret moments with Richard. Judith did not stop short of murder. In her bloody course of punishment many besides Nancy and Richard wee made to suffer. This intimate account of a tragedy involving nearly a score of famous people represents a new departure in the historical novel.
