Mass Market PB; 1.24 x 6.70 x 4.14; 562 pages; Jewel is a moving book about a family's journey from the backwoods of Mississippi to the Los Angeles and the transformation of both the family and the nation. Set in 1943 and moving forward, Jewel's last child, Brenda Kay is born with Down's syndrome, ( a Mongolian idiot, as the New Orleans specialist diagnosed. ) Undeterred by the hopeless prognosis given by the doctor, Jewel persuades her husband Leston to move to post WWII Los Angeles to find expert help for her daughter.
