About the Author:

Sena Jeter Naslund has enjoyed a rich literary career as an award-winning author, professor, and editor. Her books have received critical acclaim including the prestigious Harper Lee Award. In addition to numerous novels and two collections of short stories, her fiction has appeared in several publications. A professor since 1972, she was awarded the first ever Distinguished Teaching Professor honor from the University of Louisville as well as endowments from multiple art councils.

From AudioFile:

It is 1963, in Alabama. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., writes his now famous "Letter From the Birmingham Jail," Police Chief Bull Connor uses fire hoses and attack dogs on peaceful demonstrators, and four young girls are murdered when the Baptist church is bombed. Amid these real events, Isabel Keating brings Naslund's many fictional characters into vivid relief. Her Southern accents are never caricatures. Her authentic rendering of supremacists and integrationists, the blessed and the abused in this time of cultural upheaval, spotlights ordinary souls who must face their personal demons, their heritage of bigotry, and the moral complexities of a changing world. Naslund's compassion and understanding of the time, the people, and the events, combined with a sensitive reading by Keating, elevate Four Spirits into quality fiction. S.J.H.
