Praise for Call Your Daughter Home :

“A mesmerizing Southern tale, Call Your Daughter Home follows three women intertwined in struggle, unlikely friendship, and ultimately, redemption. Authentic, gripping, a page-turner, yet also a novel filled with language that begs to be savored. This book kept me up late and stayed with me long after I closed the final page.”
Lisa Wingate, New York Times Bestselling Author of Before We Were Yours

“Deb Spera is a master of voice, a master of deep-diving access to the roiling depths of human identity. These three women, in their fierce struggle for values and self, speak to those struggles in all of us, men and women both. Call Your Daughter Home is an exhilarating and important book.”
Robert Olen Butler, Pulitzer Prize winning author of A Good Scent from a Strange Mountain

A stunning and welcome addition to Southern Literature.”
Chris Offutt, Author of Country Dark

—Natashia Deón, Author of Grace

“Deb Spera is an amazing talent, and a powerful female voice. She channels the women in this gripping novel — Gertrude, Oretta, and Annie — like someone who has lived inside them. I cannot recommend it strongly enough.”
—Mark Bowden, New York Times and International bestselling author of Black Hawk Down

“A ferociously moving story of motherhood and justice, relayed through a trio of radiantly unforgettable voices. Deb Spera is a conjurer of the first rank.”
—Jonathan Miles, New York Times bestselling author of Dear American Airlines and Want Not
