Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Now that her father is dead, CeCe McGill is left to wonder why he risked his life for the ragged slaves who came to their door in the dead of night. When her uncle, an ornithologist, insists she accompany him to Georgia on an expedition in search of the rare scarlet ibis, CeCe is surprised to learn there's a second reason for their journey: Along the way, Uncle Alex secretly points slaves north in the direction of the Underground Railroad.
    
Set against the backdrop of the tumultuous pre-Civil War South, The Ever-After Bird is the story of a young woman's education about the horrors of slavery and the realization about the kind of person she wants to become.

Synopsis:

CeCe McGill digs deep to find the strength to stand up for her convictions when she travels South with her ornithologist uncle who is searching for the Ever-After Bird, the rare scarlet ibis, while secretly helping slaves find their way to the Underground Railroad.

While this exceptional book was written for a young audience, as an adult, I found this book to be absolutely engaging! Immersing one in the culture of pre-civil war south, this book transports the reader in a way that helps one to understand the issues surrounding human slavery emotionally, not just intellectually. A GREAT read, especially for a parent and child to read in tandem and then discuss over the summer.
