Trapped in a loveless marriage, Abigail is eager to break out. A movement to Galveston adjustments every little thing. Her tailoring company flourishes among excessive society, and a passionate love affair unfolds with an English sea captain.
Her happiness is short, for quickly she realizes she has no rights, basically wrongs. What measures will she take to own the affection she’s longed for?
En 1894, Alfred Dreyfus, officier français d’état-major d’origine juive, accusé à tort d’avoir livré des files à l'Allemagne, est condamné à l'emprisonnement à perpétuité et expédié sur l’île du Diable, en Guyane française. Sa famille organise sa défense et le véritable traître est identifié en novembre 1897 : c'est le commandant Walsin Esterhazy, fait reconnu par le lieutenant-colonel Georges Picquart, chef du carrier des renseignements militaires. Mais Picquart est limogé par l’état-major, manœuvre visant à empêcher toute reprise judiciaire de l'affaire. Malgré tout, l'élargissement du soutien à Dreyfus qui s'ensuit oblige l’état-major de l’armée à faire comparaître le commandant Esterhazy en Conseil de guerre ; il est acquitté à l'unanimité le eleven janvier 1898.
C'est ce verdict scandaleux qui pousse Émile Zola à intervenir de façon très area of expertise, en s'exposant personnellement à des poursuites en Cour d'assises, devant un tribunal civil et non militaire. En lançant par voie de presse des accusations nominatives contre dix acteurs de l’affaire, dont le ministre de los angeles Guerre et le chef d’état-major de l’armée, le romancier sait qu'il se met sous le coup de l. a. loi sur l. a. liberté de l. a. presse du 29 juillet 1881 ; il l'écrit même à los angeles fin de son texte.
Zola comparaît effectivement au mois de février 1898. Bien que le président de los angeles Cour interdise de parler de l'affaire Dreyfus, plus de cent témoins parviennent à s'exprimer. Zola est condamné au greatest de l. a. peine et s’exile à Londres. Mais le procès a mis au grand jour les failles de l’accusation contre Alfred Dreyfus, ce qui a pour conséquence, quelques mois plus tard, l. a. révision de son cas (procès de Rennes en 1899, suivi de sa grâce immédiate, et de sa réhabilitation par l. a. Cour de cassation en 1906).
« J'accuse…! », l’article d’Émile Zola, au travers de son engagement et en raison des résultats obtenus, est donc le symbole de l'éloquenceoratoire et du pouvoir de los angeles presse mis au carrier de l. a. défense d'un homme et de l. a. vérité.
