When a privileged young doctor falls in love with a handsome black man, he searches for the courage to follow his heart down an unexpected path, leaving behind a wife, children, and a promising political career. Can Dr. Brendan Garrison give up his white-bread world of servants, cocktail parties, and charity events for a future with Jonathan Miles? Can Jonathan leave the security of his job as church choir director to pursue his dream of singing opera? And can their love survive the stigma of homosexuality and the oppression of subtle racism that is still very much part of society? Whose Eye Is On Which Sparrow? reaches across the boundaries of class, culture, race, and sexuality to tell the story of the difficult choices that sometimes complicate a simple love.
