Fiction. With THOSE JORDAN GIRLS, the author of the Tyler Jones mystery trilogy (including CLOSED IN SILENCE) delivers a family novel that follows four generations of women living together in small-town Minnesota. Narrated by Maddie, the youngest, the story centers around matriarch Gummie, a strong and independent woman who finds her way to the forefront of every major twentieth-century social movement while raising a daughter, granddaughter and great-granddaughter to follow in her footsteps. Julia Alvarez (How the Garcia Girls Lost Their Accents) commented, Every word rings true. We feel a part of this unusual family, one of those Jordan girls, eagerly turning the pages to find out where we came from and who we are.
