“The unconventional, morally troubling relationships at the core of Jones' Silver Sparrow illustrate the universality of the human quest for acknowledgment, legitimacy, love, and loyalty. As Chaurisse and her secret half-sister, Dana, move toward adulthood, they must shed idealistic notions of romantic and familial love to face difficult truths. A complex family drama, a richly crafted coming-of-age story, and a meditation on the nature of love and forgiveness, this is a gripping story with characters you will not soon forget.”
— Libby Cowles, Maria's Bookshop, Durango, CO

Description


Jones unveils a breathtaking story about a man's deception, a family's complicity, and two teenage girls caught in the middle, set in a middle-class neighborhood in Atlanta in the 1980s.

Just won the Pulitzer Prize for Biography! I've read everything by and about Laura Ingalls Wilder and I still found this fascinating. It describes not only her life and that of her family; but put it into the historical context. Amazing stories, such as the 1,800 mile-long cloud of locusts. - Nikki
