"A powerful debut from a new literary talent, this novel tells the story of a Jewish family confronting the tumult of the 1960s—and the secrets that bind its members together.
Jackson Sassaport is a man who often finds himself in the middle. Whether torn between Stella, his beloved and opinionated Yankee wife, and Katherine Marie, the African American girl who first stole his teenage heart; or between standing up for his beliefs and acquiescing to his prominent Jewish family’s imperative to not stand out in the segregated South, Jackson learns to balance the secrets and deceptions of those around him. But one fateful night in 1960 will make the man in the middle reconsider his obligations to propriety and family, and will start a chain of events that will change his life and the lives of those around him forever.
Home in the Morning follows Jackson’s journey from his childhood as a coddled son of the Old South to his struggle as a young man eager to find his place in the civil rights movement while protecting his family. Flashing back between his adult life as a successful lawyer and his youth, Mary Glickman’s riveting novel traces the ways that race and prejudice, family and love intertwine to shape our lives."

Jackson Sassaport: a white Jewish lawyer born and raised in Mississippi. Stella Godwin: his wife, also Jewish, from Boston. Katherine Marie: his black boyhood sweetheart. Li'l Bokay: his first friend, and later Katherine's husband. To say more about how these four central characters relate would be to spoil the experience of reading Mary Glickman's Home in the Morning. For its very structure—the intimate interweaving of character and story, the accomplished non-linear unraveling of the plot—provides the book's distinct charisma. Spanning the Civil Rights-era through the late 1990s, Home in the Morning deals in the personal politics of its time, of its place, and of love itself in generous detail that culminates in a memorable debut.Book Description:
