55 years after the publish of To Kill a Mockingbird, more as a successor than a sequel, emerges Go Set a Watchman by the Pulitzer Prize winning author Harper Lee. Set 20 years after the events of To Kill a Mockingbird, Jean Louise Finch or ‘Scout’ is twenty-six years old, she returns from New York to her hometown Maycomb, to visit her aging father and role-model Atticus Finch. She gets overwhelmed by the memories from her past as she experiences the intolerance in her city as the country is in a transformation with civil rights and conscience driving the country towards what we know it as now. It shows Scout coming and the society phasing out of the perceived truths from the past, as Jean learns that her family and the town, are not what she thought them to be.
This book acts as a parallel runner for To Kill a Mockingbird and increments its status and value in the eyes and hearts of the people. A greatly awaited book delivering any and every promise. “Go, set a watchman, let him declare what he seeth”
