Go Set A Watchman: Harper Lee
About this book:
It’s been two decades since Harper Lee’s Pulitzer Prize winning novel To Kill A mockingbird. The town Maycomb Alabama. Set in the mid 1950’s, the little girl that we loved so much in To Kill A Mockingbird “Scout” is now all grown up. At the age of twenty six, Jean Louise Finch returns to her home town after staying in New York City. She returns to visit with her father Atticus. Upon her return Jean Louise finds her home town full of tensions, with civil rights and political turmoil transforming the south at every turn.
The return home for Jean Louise isn’t as sweet as she would have hoped, as she learns some terrible truths about her very close family, the people she loves so much and the town she grew up in. Memories of Jean Louise’s childhood come flooding back to her. Everything that she values the most is suddenly something that she now doubts. Go Set A Watchmen imparts a much fuller understanding of what we have come to know from To Kill A Mockingbird. It’s also a definite must read if you read and loved To Kill A Mockingbird.
In this enthralling novel, find out what awaits Jean Louise Finch and all the characters that you know and love when they all meet again. Are the truths that she learns about her town and close-knit family going to tare them all apart, or can they overcome the difficulties that lie before them? What about the political turmoil and civil rights that they have to face, will that completely destroy the south or transform it for the better? Find out more in this exiting new Harper Lee novel. This novel is said to be, ‘a book of wisdom, humanity, passion, humor and effortless rescission, a profoundly affecting work of art that is both wonderfully evocative of another era and relevant to our own times.’ I definitely can not wait to read about the characters that I so loved in To Kill A Mockingbird. This book sure does seem well worth the wait.
