Full Plot

Both Jael and Mr. Jones recommend that recently appointed State Supreme Court Justice Brooke Canby, who has led an exemplary life, proceed to ascendancy, to which Judge Jepthah agrees. However, Brooke herself pleads for a second chance at life. She recently met up with Ken Stryker, her first and only love, who she had not seen in thirty years. They knew each other in the late 1960's when they were both anti-Vietnam War activists. Having grown up in a life of privilege under the watchful eye of her lawyer father, Brooke was forced by her father to provide testimony, albeit what she knew to be truthful, against Ken which sent him to jail and saved herself from a life of prison. Following, Brooke focused her life on the pursuit of a law career - one that she knew she wanted since a child - to the detriment of love, and now wants to have a second chance at love with Ken. Jepthah agrees to Brooke's wishes, however he does warn her that all may not turn out the way she wants and in turn may affect the good in her life that she has known. Jepthah sends her back to that era as Janet Bryant, Brooke's lawyer in her, Ken and two other accused's trial on criminal trespass and arson, with Jones as Danny Ryan, her co-counsel. As Janet, she may be able to save both herself and Ken from prison, but other forces may make her reexamine other aspects of her life in 1969. Huggo Plot not found
