Jaybird’s Song: A Novel
by Kathy Wilson Florence
Pub Date 07 Feb 2017
In Jaybird’s Song, Florence skillfully alternates between these defining moments of Josie’s childhood and 35 years later when her beloved grandmother, Annie Joe, passes away. Revealing a long-kept family secret, a new kind of heartache begins for Josie as she struggles to rise against tragedy with grace with maintaining loyalty to the family she holds so dear. The depth of Florence’s brilliantly crafted, strong female characters continues to surprise and awe the reader throughout, as does her ability to turn the turbulent 1960s South into a character all its own. Modern women will relate to the ladies of Jaybird’s Song of a bygone era as they grapple with sexuality and aggression from the opposite sex in a time before trigger warnings and rape culture awareness.
