About the Book

Agnes experienced many setbacks ranging from rural America to Kenya, Africa. She was one of those persons who didn't seem to be able to get it right. She experiencd anomie when her world crumbled right down around her. She had to struggle with physical ailments, mental anguish, and emotional trauma before she finally chose the right path. And even when she was on the right path, circumstances slam dunked her back to unacceptable behaviors. Agnes acts of kindness and charity far outweighted the immorality she endulged. The lesson the Author hopes each person walks away with after reading this short story is to maintain determination and never give up: Agnes did not give up.

About the Author

Little Boy Blue (Richard B. Maye, B.S., B.A., M.A., PHD) is an Assistant Professdor, and he serves as Chair, Department of Sociology, at Illinois College, Jacksonville, Illinois 62650. He is Founder of the Second Timothy Baptist Church, Springfield, Illinois 62703. His passion is teaching all who would listen and understand Sociological Perspectives as well as God's Word. Maye has always been genuinely concerned about each and every person he meets. He is acutely aware of public awareness on social issues: hunger, homeless, nutrition and affordable housing, etc. Sarah Strack-Briggs wrote a newspaper article on Dr. Maye in which she quotes the following: "Dr. Maye has been and will continue to be a favorite among students who have taken his courses. His pure love of the job, unparalleled wit, and genuinely kind manner has allowed Dr. Maye to earn a special place in the hearts of those around him." Maye was the Keynote Speaker at Illinois College for the Martin Luther King Jr. Program this past January 2008, and an attendee wrote to the Jacksonville newspaper the following about the Program: "As I write this, it is Martin Luther King Jr. Day, and I have just returned from Illinois College, where I heard Dr. Richard B. Maye present a Testamaent of Hope: the Life and Legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr." He continues, "What a presentation! I have attended many events honoring the fallen civil rights leader, but his was the most provocative and inspiring yet." To some Maye is a gadfly, but to others he is a God send.
