Book One


Kindle Cover - Book One


In Accidents of Birth Book One, ten-year-old Miss Imogene goes to work with her mother, a housekeeper for the Sutton family, to learn the only job that will be open to her in the 1940s in Mississippi. She takes over the position at age 19, startled at how much move involved it is than it appeared when her mother was in charge. Following her mother’s invocation to live loving the world, Miss Imogene’s initial struggles and trials  begin almost immediately as she allies herself with one of her charges, Katie Gayle Sutton, a child prodigy, in order that the child might survive her abusive parents and succeed as a dancer, the one escape route life offers her.


Aided by her earthy wisdom, her sense of humor, her loving husband, her cart horse, Polly, and her conversations with God Almighty as if He were the guy next door, Miss Imogene  persists in her efforts only to find her own family becoming a target of a century’s old racism erupting once again in Mississippi.
