Publisher's Description

People have always fascinated sociologist Perry Warren, yet his most personal relationships--with his wife and young son--are in shambles. If his marriage crumbles, will his son be raised fatherless, just as he was? Hoping distance will offer answers, Perry accepts a writing project in the town of Derby, South Carolina, and there discovers a wealth of research--and a reason to hope--in the strange yet fascinating neighbors next door.
Eldeen Rafferty seems completely unfettered by the sorrows she has known. Instead, she embraces life in all its gritty, glorious detail, determined to leave cheer in her wake. Perry is baffled by her unending joy and her boundless gratitude, and he wonders what she might be able to offer to a life haunted by troubles...a life he is at a loss to repair on his own.

Suncatchers, Jamie Langston Turner's first novel, launched this premier novelist's journey toward recognition of her Winter Birds in Publishers Weekly's Best Books of 2006.

    At first I was sure (I thought) where this book was going and I wasn't all that thrilled- but then things took off and though the narrator is the hero of the book- his eccentric and lovable neighbor takes over, pounding people over the head in such a loving way that she is completely inoffensive- if that makes sense. She is the collector of suncatchers that cover her window and let in the same love and light and color that she shares with all around her. If there was ever a character I would like to meet from fiction- Eldeen would be that character- but then maybe I have met her in real life after all. Or maybe I need to be Eldeen myself.
