Deborah Spera & Call Your Daughter Home at Flintridge Bookstore

Join us to hear author Deborah Spera, in conversation with Peter Bachman, Flintridge Preparatory School Headmaster, discuss her debut novel, Call Your Daughter Home.

This novel is 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 boll weevil infestation that devastated the land and the economy. Gertrude 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 feed slave, still employed by the Coles, who once owned her family. Annie is the matriarch of the Coles family and must come to terms with the truth that has ripped her family apart.

These three women seemingly have nothing in common, yet they unite to stand up to terrible injustices that have long plagued their small town, and find strength in the bond that ties them together.
