When the Bluebirds Sing

When the Bluebirds Sing
Three sisters, the children of a mixed couple - their father African American, their mother white - choose different paths for adult fulfillment. Beautiful, fair-skinned Leana, who is proficient, skillful, and talented at the piano, wants to become a concert pianist. Does she have the fortitude to live a life alone, buffeted by incessant travel and stage appearances? Fresh from the Conservatory at Oberlin College, will she instead pursue a career mentored by her African American professor, who insists on a sexual relationship? What path does she finally choose? Nicole, who views her dark skin as an impediment to success, is gratified when Bryn Mawr college accepts her as a student, but she is dissatisfied by being tethered to a domineering high school sweetheart. Does a new, meaningful life await her when she breaks away and begins a relationship with an African American, both of them students at the University of Pennsylvania law school? Together can they help other blacks overcome the legal disadvantages in a white society? Can Danielle, the loving younger sister who wants nothing more than to help youngsters grow up healthy and strong, overcome the loss of her first love? Martha's Vineyard beckons her and engenders in her an extreme interest in the Native Americans, whose ancestors have lived on the island for thousands of years. She, on the other hand, doesn't even know her grandparents, who disowned her parents when they married. Does she find happiness when she marries a Native American and reconciles with her immediate ancestors? When do the bluebirds sing? When all is right with the world? Or at least a microcosm of the world.
