Behind-the-sheet-digital-cover-3000x3000-r1v1_small In 1840’s Alabama, a slave-owning doctor performs medical experiments on involuntary subjects – his slaves – in an effort to solve the problem of fistulas, a post-childbirth anomaly. As the experiments proceed, the enslaved women realize their survival will depend on learning to trust each other.
