Silver Sparrow

Silver Sparrow by Tayari Jones Book Summary

From the New York Times Bestselling Author of An American Marriage

“A love story . . . Full of perverse wisdom and proud joy . . . Jones’s skill for wry understatement never wavers.”
O: The Oprah Magazine

Silver Sparrow will break your heart before you even know it. Tayari Jones has written a novel filled with characters I’ll never forget. This is a book I’ll read more than once.”
Judy Blume

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

Set in a middle-class neighborhood in Atlanta in the 1980s, the novel revolves around James Witherspoon's two families—the public one and the secret one. When the daughters from each family meet and form a friendship, only one of them knows they are sisters. It is a relationship destined to explode. This is the third stunning novel from an author deemed "one of the most important writers of her generation" (the Atlanta Journal Constitution).

- Great book5 star

This is a page turner just as An American Marriage is.

- Not a good ending2 star

I thought the book was good until I got to the end. I must say I was a bit disappointed

- Silver sparrow1 star

This is the 2nd book I’ve read by this author...An American Marriage being the first. I didn’t like it but I’d heard such good things about the author that I decided to try another book. I can honestly say I don’t like this author at all. The characters in this book are trifling, selfish, and the ending was not fair to Dana at all. Just like with the other book, I find myself asking what was the purpose of this book. They both seemed really negative and depressing. I guess some say realistic but why not give readers an idea of how things could be by making better choices, especially in regards to love and relationships. In these two books, that was the start...being with the wrong person.

- Interesting twist in perspective!5 star

I can say I’ve read this particular book 5 times already.. and I fell in love so I had to purchase a copy of my own! The way the author tells the story in the eyes of the so to speak “2nd wife’s (or) secret wife’s” daughters eyes is genius! Especially because kids don’t ask to be here so she shouldn’t have to pay for the choices her parents made.. I Fall in love with it each time..

- Vivid storytelling5 star

This is the first book I read by Tayari Jones and it has me looking forward to reading her others.

- Awesome!5 star

I'm not an avid reader but I finished this in a week while doing decorations for my wedding...Very easy read! The style makes it easy to become part of the story and really visualize everything.

- Loved it5 star

Comfortable and an easy read... Not completely predictable

- Excellent book5 star

Silver Sparrow is an awesome read with an intriguing plot. The author's writing style keeps your attention from the beginning to the end of the book. This book is simply awesome.
