Summary
Fiona Maye is a leading High Court Judge, presiding over cases in the family court. She is renowned for her fierce intelligence, exactitiude and sensitivity. But her professional success belies private sorrow and domestic strife. There is the lingering regret of her childlessness, and now her marriage of thirty years is in crisis. At the same time, she is called to try an urgent case: for religious reasons a seventeen years old boy, Adam, is refusing the medical treatment that could save his life, and his devout parents share his wishes. Should the secular court overrule sincerely held faith?
