Jubal Leatherbury tells the story of an abused child, describes the impact of witnessed abuse, and eventually extends to the damage caused by cruelty to incarcerated human beings. It is a dark and powerful subject, but the tale is clothed in a many faceted story of love—love between father and son, between husband and wife, of interracial tenderness surprising for the time, and a David and Jonathan kind of love between friends.
