IN MEMORY OF is my version of this cruel custom. It’s the story of an unmarked grave outside the cemetery fence closer to Mobile than Montgomery, wedged between woods and water, in a place nobody goes. According to folklore, Thomas John Sutton, 14, is buried under.
Thomas loves Esther, but she isn’t accepted in Canaan because of her bastard birth. After discovering the secret of his birth, Thomas fears he’ll be treated the same. It’s another example of two teenagers struggling against an unforgiving society.
