"My father, James Witherspoon, is a bigamist." So begins this compelling contemporary novel about one man, his two wives, and the children whose lives are shaped and twisted by their parents' choices. Narrated first by Dana, James's "secret" daughter, and then by Chaurisse, his "legitimate" one, Silver Sparrow deftly explores how two families (or one, depending on how you look at it) can be simultaneously ordinary and extraordinary, the members living separate yet intertwined lives. Skillfully written and impressively nuanced, Silver Sparrow is a remarkable novel that's guaranteed to spark a heated discussion at your next book-club meeting! (KG)
