Description for LET'S CHOOSE EXECUTORS by Sara Woods:

It had been stuffy in the courtroom, and it was a relief to come out into the open, even on a raw January day. Antony Maitland, barrister, paused to savor the moment, when a voice hailed him breathlessly, and a tall woman hurried to join him. It took him a moment to realize he'd seen her in court that morning, in the gown of a junior barrister.

"A nice girl?" Jenny asked.

"So I'm told. I haven't seen her yet."

"I'd like you to come home," said Jenny, "but if you think she's 'really' a nice girl, you'd better stay."

Antony stayed, and became embroiled in what seemed like a hopeless case. But he was determined to do what he could---to rescue a damsel in real distress.
