Abstract:

Judge J. Waties Waring was a South Carolina federal judge in the old-school mode, until, sometime in the 1940s-following an unseemly divorce and instant remarriage-a slow progressive conversion took hold. This story looks mostly at the aftermath, not for Waring but for his protege Arthur Covingdale. Covingdale was supposed to follow Waring to the federal bench, but after Waring's shift destroyed that career path, Covingdale helped burn a cross on Waring's lawn.

This novel takes place mostly in the fractious 1960s, focusing on Covingdale's struggle to understand why he terrorized the judge, and how Covingdale himself fits into a social structure whose foundation is crumbling.
