Summary

Summary

A June 2019 LibraryReads Pick

A stunning tour de force following three fierce, unforgettable Southern women in the years leading up to the Great Depression

It’s 1924 South Carolina and the region is still recovering from the infamous boll weevil infestation that devastated the land and the economy. Gertrude, a mother of four, must make an unconscionable decision to save her daughters from starvation or die at the hands of an abusive husband. Retta is navigating a harsh world as a first-generation freed slave, still employed by the Coles, influential plantation proprietors who once owned her family. Annie is the matriarch of the Coles family and must come to terms with the terrible truth that has ripped her family apart.

These three women seemingly have nothing in common, yet as they unite to stand up to the terrible injustices that have long plagued the small town, they find strength in the bond that ties women together. Told in the pitch-perfect voices of Gertrude, Retta and Annie, Call Your Daughter Home is an audacious, timeless story about the power of family, deep-buried secrets and the ferocity of motherhood.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“A mesmerizing Southern tale, Call Your Daughter Home follows three women intertwined in struggle, unlikely friendship, and ultimately, redemption. Authentic, gripping, a page-turner, yet also a novel filled with language that begs to be savored. This book kept me up late and stayed with me long after I closed the final page.” Lisa Wingate, New York Times bestselling author
“Richly rendered and engrossing, Spera’s debut is a powerful look at the lives of women in the early twentieth-century Deep South.” Booklist
“Rich with details about the hard physical work and emotional resilience demanded of women in the rural South almost a hundred years ago…A story of strong women pushed to extremes succeeds with convincing characters and a vivid portrait of the rural South a century ago.” Kirkus Reviews
