A Seventh Son

Perfect Peace book coverAll Emma Jean wanted was a baby girl. Instead she had six sons. When the midwife delivered her seventh, Emma Jean paid the woman off and dressed the boy as a girl. But secrets like that can’t last, and the day after Perfect’s eighth birthday, she hears, “You was born a boy. I made you a girl. But that ain’t what you was supposed to be. So, from now on, you gon’ be a boy.” Perfect is renamed Paul, and his father and six brothers are left to help him along his new path. Perfect Peace, by Daniel Black, is a touching coming-of-age novel that explores forgiveness, parenting, and sexuality in the 1940s rural South.
