About the Book



Homeward follows Rose's path toward self-discovery and growth as she becomes involved in the Civil Rights Movement, finally becoming the woman she has always dreamed of being.



Book Synopsis



The country is changing, and her own world is being turned upside down. Nothing--and no one--will ever be the same.

Georgia, 1962. Rose Perkins Bourdon returns home to Parsons, GA, without her husband and pregnant with another man's baby. After tragedy strikes her husband in the war overseas, a numb Rose is left with pieces of who she used to be and is forced to figure out what she is going to do with the rest of her life. Her sister introduces her to members of the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee--young people are taking risks and fighting battles Rose has only seen on television. Feeling emotions for the first time in what feels like forever, the excited and frightened Rose finds herself becoming increasingly involved in the resistance efforts. And of course, there is also the young man, Isaac Weinberg, whose passion for activism stirs something in her she didn't think she would ever feel again.

Homeward follows Rose's path toward self-discovery and growth as she becomes involved in the Civil Rights Movement, finally becoming the woman she has always dreamed of being.

Praise for Homeward:

"This is a harrowing novel about the push and pull of fidelity, family, and faith under the crush of history. Angela Jackson-Brown has written a deeply emotional novel that feels timeless while also speaking to the particularly troubled times in which we live."

--Wiley Cash, New York Times bestselling author of When Ghosts Come Home

  • A stirring tale of one woman's experience in the Civil Rights movement that changed a nation, written from Angela Jackson-Brown's experience of being born and raised in the rural South.
  • Stand-alone novel
  • Includes Discussion Questions for book clubs



Review Quotes




Angela Jackson-Brown does an excellent job of sharing Civil Rights history that may be little known to some readers, doing so in an engaging narrative . . . She provides a good character--young, searching, and smart--to represent Black Southerners and their journey to understand and accept the actions of and reactions to the Civil Rights movement. Accepting the movement's tenets meant reconciling it with their faith, and Homeward explores this sympathetically and effectively. A worthwhile read.--Historical Novel Society
