Surrounding their world, however, is the turbulent South. As Josie's school desegregates and the country meanders through new ideas, a personal tragedy breaches Josie's world and shatters that perfect childhood.
Josie's story is told from her early teenage years and 35 years later when her beloved grandmother dies. And when a long-kept secret unfolds for the Flint family, a new kind of heartache begins.
REVIEWS: Florence's skillful portrayal of '60s Atlanta elevates this novel to striking historical fiction. An absorbing family saga provides a first-person account of Atlanta during the crucial civil rights era while also covering the early 21st century. - Kirkus Reviews
Impressively entertaining while at the same time thoughtful and thought-provoking, "Jaybird's Song" is a consistently absorbing read from beginning to end. Exceptional and with admirable attention to historical detail. - Midwest Book Review
