This is Harper Lee's sequel to Go Kill a Mockingbird, written in the 1950s but not published until 2015. It catches up with Scout twenty years after Mockingbird, now living in New York City and at the beginning of the book on a train returning for her annual two week vacation with Atticus in Maycomb. Jem has died young, Calpurnia has retired and Atticus is now old, in failing health but still practicing law with Hank as is junior partner.
As never before, Scout, or Jean Louise as she was baptized, notices the changes in Maycomb. The black population seems different. The NAACP has come to town and the white citizenry seem to treat every black with suspicion. When Scout stumbles upon her beloved Atticus leading and semi fiancee Hank attending a meeting of KKK and white supremacists she goes into free fall. What follows is how she confronts the reality of Malcomb and the people she has loved and known all her life and what she has always believed about them, especially Atticus whose imprint on her life made her what she has become.

Publisher is Harper Collins, ISBN 9780062409850
