Alissa says, “Call Your Daughter Home is the best book of 2020.” Out in softcover, this book will make you laugh, cry and hope. The story never ends. As Alissa wrote, “Grab it today.”
The story takes place in South Carolina. The year is 1924. Gertrude, the mother, has to make a decision on how to save her daughters from starvation. It is a sad tale of an abusive husband, yet the mother helps make the girls lives better with her humor and love.
Oprah Magazine wrote: These three women seemingly have nothing in common, yet as they unite to stand up to 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 emotional, timeless story about the power of family, community, and ferocity of motherhood.
“Like Jill McCorkle and Sue Monk Kidd, Spera probes the comfort and strength women find in their own company.”
