A Small Matter of Injustice by Richard J. Reese is the story of seventeen-year-old Carrie Buck and the fight for her life. Carrie was taken into the home of John and Alice Dobbs as a foster child but becomes an indentured servant, deprived of education. Things come to a head when Alice’s nephew rapes Carrie during his summer holiday, and she falls pregnant. The family takes her child and ships her off to a colony for epileptics and the feebleminded to hide their shame. Her woes are compounded when Dr. Priddy and then Dr. Bell advocate, with the help of Attorney Strode, to sterilize her, but Carrie won't have it. She hires a lawyer. Unbeknownst to Carrie, she is in a nest of vipers and does not know who is a friend and who is a foe. What is Carrie’s fate?
A Small Matter of Injustice by Richard J. Reese is a beautiful spin on history and fiction that held me spellbound. The novel is a brilliant choice for lovers of law and medicine, especially the study of eugenics. I loved the development, characters, and storyline because they were seamless. The author left his touch by giving me a glimpse into each character’s thoughts. Reese also knows when to pile on the suspense and get straight to the point. This book was a story in a story, and I loved the synergy between both. My favorite character is Carrie. She is witty, bright, and so unfairly treated by everyone. I didn't think Carrie was a moron or an imbecile. Who are we to judge others? The storyline showed me the decay behind the justice system. Is there indeed superior stock? We all should talk about eugenics. Thank you, Reese.
