In a 1982 New Orleans courtroom the best kept secret in the world is about to unravel, and a young couple's jet set lives are about to change. Senior district attorney Peter Jacobs is facing the trial of a lifetime, a passionate, spiritual battle against an evil with far reaching consequences. His beloved wife Rebecca, a glamorous and driven partner at a major law firm, suddenly finds her life spun out of control and her new faith tested while facing a once in a lifetime choice.

New from lawyer-turned-novelist Pamela binnings Ewen, An Accidental Life is fiction based on fact: the testimony of registered nurse Jill Stanek before a U.S. Congressional Committee confirming that it was routine for doctors in Chicago's Christ Hospital to have nurses take infants born alive during abortions down to a "soiled utility room" and leave them to die.

Stanek's testimony led Congress to enact the Born Alive Infant Protection Act of 2001, a federal-only law that still does not bind state run hospitals or private clinics. The fact remains that what happens to abortion survivors is one of the best kept secrets in the world.
Pamela Binnings Ewen practiced law for twenty-five years before following in the authorial footsteps of relatives James Lee Burke (The Glass Rainbow) and Andre Dubus III (The House of Sand and Fog) with novels like The Moon in the Mango Tree, winner of the Eudora Welty Memorial Award in the 2012 Biennial Letters competition. Her third work of fiction, Dancing on Glass, won the 2012 Single Titles Reviewers Choice Award and was a Christy Award finalist.
