"Roscoe T. Martin, the son of an Alabama coal foreman, set his sights on a new type of power spreading at the start of the twentieth century: electricity. It became his training and his life's work. Then his wife Marie inherits her father's failing farm, and Roscoe has to give it up, with great cost to his pride and sense of self, to rescue the farm. Realizing he might lose them all if he doesn't improve the place, he uses his skills as an electrician to siphon energy from the state, which ushers in a period of bounty and happiness on land that had been falling to ruin. Everything changes when a man is electrocuted by Roscoe's illegal lines: Roscoe is arrested for manslaughter, the farm deteriorates without electricity, and Marie leaves him to face his prison sentence alone. No longer an electrician or a farmer, Roscoe must now carve out his place in a violent new world and ask himself again if his work is just work or if the price of his crimes is greater than he ever knew"--Container.
