Descrizione

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.

    Fullness of the characters and the reading made it great
  • (5/5)
    The audiobook was so well done. Each of the 3 voices reading the story gave it true life. The interaction of the characters with the social and physical environments is described so well the reader is drawn into the action on a personal level. I usually read books rather than listen, I highly recommend Call Your Daughter Home as an audiobook.

    There was nothing about this book that I didn’t like. The story had me totally engaged and the narration was great. It’s similar to Where the Crawdads Sing but I enjoyed it more.

    Call Your Daughter Home is now my favorite read of all time. Deb Spera should turn her novel into a movie!!! Gertrude, Annie and Rhetta will live on for many years in my thoughts...
