silver sparrow

Book: Silver Sparrow

Two teenage African-American girls living in 1980s Atlanta live very different lives, except for one thing they share: a father. One mother and daughter know of their father's second family. What happens when the other mother and daughter find out?

"My father, James Witherspoon is a bigamist," is the opening line of Silver Sparrow, a novel written by Tayari Jones that unveils a breathtaking story about a man's deception, a family's complicity, and the two teenage girls caught in the middle.
