Go Set a Watchman by Harper Lee


I originally had misgivings about reading this book but was pleasantly surprised.

The central character is definitely the spitfire Scout we came to know in "To Kill a Mockingbird". Here 26 year old Jean Louise goes back home to visit her now much older arthritic father Atticus.
Her perceptions of who people are in her home town and family are maybe different from what she remembers as a child and leaves her wondering where she was all those years. Learning to accept people with all their faults but holding on to her own identity becomes the struggle.
A couple of characters that I got a better picture of in this book are her Aunt Alexandra and her Uncle Jack Finch.
                                     I recommend this book!
