Review: Miss Jane

Miss Jane
Miss Jane by Brad Watson
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

A delightfully quiet and contemplative book, inspired by the true story of the author’s own great-aunt, the novel explores the life of Miss Jane Chisolm, born in rural, early-twentieth-century Mississippi with a urogenital birth defect. Her grace and resilience in the face of being a permanent social outcast is beautifully developed and she is not the only wonderfully authentic character in the book. A deceptively simple, and simply beautiful book.
