On one life-altering Alabama morning, Noah Dean Jackson and his three siblings, John Martin, James Trevor, and Lillie Ann, wake up to an eerily empty house. After hearing the all-too-frequent noises of discord coming from their parents room the night before, all that remains is a toppled chair and the four of them to wonder what became of their parents, Cain and Lora Ann, and to equally wonder what will become of the four of them.
With strength and compassion, The Sunflowers paints an absorbing portrait of people and place that is inflected with a Southern accent and certain to engage anyone who appreciates authentic regional literature. Each character comes to life the moment he or she appears on the page, and its certain to quickly capture your heart and imagination.
