A FLIGHT OF DAZZLE ANGELS
New York : Macmillan, 1988.
in 1908, Annie Earle Roland has troubles. Her mom is disabled by a heart
condition, her 16 year old brother collects butterflies and wanders in
and out of trances and seizures. She is afflicted with a club foot. They
aren't poor-- with the help of Aunt Charlotte and her granddaughter Queen
Ester, they manage well. The problem is Aunt Kat who starts proceedings
to declare Mrs. Roland incompetent. She plans to institutionalize the kids
and take over the family's investments. Annie Earle isn't about to give
in without a fight. She buys insurance in the form of a conjure bag from
the local spell maker that Queen Ester takes her to. This story is her
struggle to keep her family, however defective, together and out of the
grips of greedy Aunt Kat.
