She won’t let an innocent man hang
When Charity Dawson resigns her father’s corporate law firm to pursue a career as a trial lawyer, she gets more of a change than she wanted. She finds herself transported to 1888 Texas in the middle of a murder trial.
Turner Reardon is on trial for killing his mistress. He’s given up all hope when an oddly dressed young woman disrupts his trial, claiming she can prove his innocence. Her testimony is brilliant, but his optimism is short lived when she also claims she’s a lawyer.
Charity doesn’t know how she arrived in Prairie, and no one believes she actually went to law school. Her evidence is tossed out and Turner is sentenced to hang. She has only one chance to save an innocent man’s life and find the real killer.

"We find the defendant, Turner Reardon, guilty as charged." The words hit Turner in the chest like a blow from a two by four. For a minute he was unsteady on his feet.
Judge Howell peered down at him, sympathy on his face. "Son, I hate to do this because I don't believe you're guilty, but my job is to administer justice." He hit the gavel. "I hereby sentence you to hang by the neck until you are dead. Execution will be carried out July 19, 1888, two days from now. May God have mercy on your soul."
Charity thought she'd pass out in a dead faint. The man was innocent. She knew it as well as she knew her name.
Mr. Reardon looked back at her before he was taken away. "I appreciate you trying, Miss Dawson."
Throat too choked to speak, she nodded.
She sat there for the longest time, thinking. There had to be a way to save this man's life.
