    Set in a middle-class neighborhood in Atlanta in the 1980s, Silver Sparrow revolves around James Witherspoon's two families - the public one and the secret one. When the daughters from each family meet and form a friendship, only one of them knows they are sisters. It is a relationship destined to explode when secrets are revealed and illusions shattered. As Jones explores the backstories of her rich yet flawed characters - the father, the two mothers, the grandmother, and the uncle - she also reveals the joy, as well as the destruction, they brought to one another's lives.

    Story
    What disappointed you about Silver Sparrow?

    The story line was predictable and not interesting. I picked this book because I really enjoyed her first book, Leaving Atlanta. However, I was so very disappointed this time around.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    Something else from my already stocked library!


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    No real problem with the narrator


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Silver Sparrow?

    Everything after the Grandmother died or at least from the big party


    Any additional comments?

    Maybe Tayari can go back, review her Leaving Atlanta story, and write like that again!
