Jennifer Winslow was once a spoiled New York socialite -- until the crash of 1929 forced her family to move to a small farm in Georgia. She is adjusting to her tough rural life when, through a series of startling events, she finds herself running for county sheriff. Jenny soon discovers fierce enemies among the local moonshiners, who are in league with big-city gangsters. But even many law-abiding citizens scoff at the idea of a female sheriff. Among her few supporters are two men she is drawn to: an idealistic young lawyer and a reluctant deputy.
