In Cottonwood Whispers
, the sequel to Fireflies in December
, readers will find a story of quick assumptions and false accusations; a story of how easily people can believe something without exploring justification. And a story of true sacrificial love and pure faith in God's sovereignty.
Of course, the novel will also continue the story of Jessilyn and Luke...!
In this sequel to Jennifers award-winning debut novel Fireflies in December, Jessilyn Lassiter and her best friend Gemma Teague have survived prejudice and heartache in their lifelong friendship, but the summer of 1936 threatens to tear them apart yet again. Gemmas job with the wealthy Hadley family leads to a crush on their youngest son. But Jessilyns insistence that hes no good and that no rich white man would ever truly fall for a poor black girl like Gemma puts them at odds. Tragedy strikes when Jessilyns cherished neighbor girl is hit by a car and killed. Things get worse when an elderly friend is falsely accused of the crime, and the only way to clear his name is to put her familys livelihood in jeopardy. For Jessilyn, this is a choice too hard to bear and she wonders where to turn for answers, especially when an angry mob threatens vigilante justice. Jennifers third book, Catching Moondrops, releases in Fall 2010.
