In Texas, it's politics as usual, but to Isabel Martin, it threatens her very being. She escapes to her uncle's idyllic Ranch of the Fig Trees in South Texas, expecting a luxurious haven after of her parents' divorce. But there is an insidious little rumor about the family that the whole county is talking about--how Lyndon Johnson won the senate election that launched him into power. Isabel struggles to believe her uncle is innocent of voter fraud, but how can she know what to believe when rumor lays a heavy film of guilt over the family she loves?
