Miss Jane - Brad Watson

Staff Pick

Miss Jane is a novel of quiet heroism: Jane’s strength and courage to bear up gracefully under an unfortunate condition and her doctor’s selfless and genuine love for her. Set in a small Mississippi town in the early 20th century, Brad Watson’s novel is a deeply affecting character study of a young woman born with ambiguous genitalia and intestinal problems. Her condition bars her from living a normal life—going to school, socializing with people her own age. Her only friend outside her family is her neighbor, the doctor who is treating her. Their relationship deepens as he is the only person able to see past her condition and appreciate her intelligence and goodness. Mostly, it’s a book about courage, and quiet revelation.
