New York Times bestselling author, Joshilyn Jackson, drew readers in with Almost Sisters, an emotionally resonant novel of the South that confronts the truth about privilege, family, and the distinctions between perception and reality.


Superheroes have always been Leia Birch Briggs’ weakness. One tequila-soaked night at a comics convention, the usually level-headed graphic novelist is swept off her barstool by a handsome and anonymous Batman. It turns out the caped crusader has left her with more than just a nice, fuzzy memory. She’s having a baby boy—an unexpected but not unhappy development in the thirty-eight year-old’s life.


Before Leia can break the news of her impending single-motherhood (including the fact that her baby is biracial) to her conventional, Southern family, she learns her beloved ninety-year-old grandmother, Birchie, has been hiding her dementia. Leia returns to Alabama to put her grandmother’s affairs in orderand while cleaning out the attic, she finds a dangerous secret with roots that reach all the way back to the Civil War. Its exposure threatens the family’s freedom and future, and it will change everything about how Leia sees herself and her sister, her son and his missing father, and the world she thinks she knows.
