Description


If you loved Maria and Walter in When the Jaybird Sings, you'll love them in When the Fig Tree Blooms. Just married, Walter takes Maria to live in the little house in the country and begins to fill the house and yard beyond it with animals ... dogs, chickens, a few geese ... a goat. A goat so young that Maria finds herself feeding it from a baby bottle. With all the young animals around needing her constant care, Maria discovers she and Walter will add just one more baby to the group, their own. A difficult pregnancy brings Old Grammy to live with Maria, and she remains beyond the birth of their second child. Just when things are beginning to look up, the family hears of the bombing of Pearl Harbor. Before long, Savannah, like every other city and town in America, is emptied of its young men. News speaks daily of soldiers killed during battle. When the Fig Tree Blooms is a heartwarming story of a Savannah family, the births, the deaths, everyday events, all lived against the backdrop of World War II.
