Edith Kettle, affectionately called Edie, is no different from most young black women growing up in the Jim Crow South. She lives with her parents, works at Jansen's sewing factory, sits in the colored section of the Montgomery public city bus, and gives up her seat to white passengers whenever the white section is overcrowded.By all accounts, Edie is a stickler to the rules and a model citizen and daughter. However, all that changes one hot summer afternoon when a handsome stranger gives his seat to a weary Edie. Intrigued by his act of kindness, Edie ignores the ring on his left hand along with the rules that once governed her life.Miss Kettle's Keepsakes is a journal chronicling the life of Edith Kettle. The setting takes place in Montgomery, Alabama. Edie begins her journaling in the summer of 1955 as racial tensions reach a boiling point.
