The Savannah River winds its way through When the Jaybird Sings, bringing to five-year-old Maria, ships from far away and forbidden adventure, even the hint of ghosts. Maria comes to terms with a frightful looking one-eyed grandmother, discovers the marvels of the early Twentieth Century and enjoys a rollicking family life. The Depression and first love bring a growing awareness of social problems as Maria comes of age. The characters will walk right off the pages and into your heart because they are real live people. This is a treasury of family stories, told with easy Southern charm and warm humor. Visit the graceful city of Savannah, GA, meet the Cipolettis, meet Old Grammy, and above all, meet Maria. In the midst of today's hectic life style, it is good to sit back, kick off your shoes and read a story of the south, a glimpse back to an increasingly popular Savannah. Anyone who enjoys a trip back in time to the 1920s and 1930s, will love this sweet story of unforgettable characters, a time of innocence that is gone forever. You'll remember Maria long after she tells her story, for it is like coming home after being away a long time, a short visit to an earlier time when life was simpler.
