Book Summary

Ruth Jefferson, a labor and delivery nurse, begins a routine checkup on a newborn, only to be told a few minutes later that she's been reassigned to another patient. The parents are white supremacists and don't want Ruth, who is African American, to touch their child. The next day the child goes into cardiac distress while Ruth is alone in the nursery. Does she obey orders or intervene?
