Bluebird, Bluebird

Restoration. Almost every character in Attica Locke’s finely written novel titled, Bluebird, Bluebird, is involved in some form of restoration. Protagonist and black Texas Ranger Darren Matthews finds himself under suspicion for the murder of a white drug dealer and he longs to restore his reputation. A black lawyer from Chicago drives to East Texas to restore his father’s guitar by putting it in the hands of a former band member, but he is then killed. Geneva Sweet wants restorative justice for the unsolved murder of her husband, and a wealthy white landowner wants Geneva’s property to be restored to the longtime holdings of his family. Every character is finely drawn and complex, and Locke’s prose is lyrical, while never deviating from telling a story that will engage every reader. Rating: Five-star (I love it) Click here to purchase Bluebird Bluebird from amazon.com.
