Jean Louise Finch tries to go home again and finds tiny Maycomb, Alabama, grappling with the emerging civil rights movement in the mid-1950s.

At 26 Jean Louise, who managed to grow up color-blind in the Deep South, has been living in New York City. She arrives home for her fifth annual two-week visit eager to see her father, Atticus. She also plans to see her longtime suitor, Henry "Hank" Clinton, her brother's best friend and junior partner in Atticus' law firm. She thinks she may be ready to settle down and give Atticus some grandchildren, but what she discovers undermines every assumption she has ever had....
