The Blue Lady is a story is about what happened the night Master died and the relationship between two slaves in 1830 South Carolina, LaLi, Elizabeth, and The Master's wife, their mistress, Missy.
I am making Missy a new dress. The better I get to know the character, I cannot see her owning a black dress. She probably has been competing with other women for her husband's attention since they were courting. She is in the habit of trying to look pretty and I don't think hatred of her husband and bitterness could change that.
THE BLUE LADY is a revisionist tale about slavery from a female point of view about how three people with a blood connection - The Master, The Master's & LaLi's mulatto son, and Blue, the mother of their grandchildren - wound up dead in the space of a night. At least one of the dead, Blue, was murdered. The Blue Lady finally is the story of how guilt was assigned that night without anyone taking responsibility.
