When Sparrows Fall
By Meg Moseley
When Sparrows Fall is the engaging story of a young mother and widow, Miranda, struggling to break free from her controlling and deceptive pastor. She strives throughout the story to hear God’s voice as she struggles to make a way for her young family. When Miranda suffers an accident, she is forced to call in an estranged brother-in-law, Jack, to care for her six children. Jack is shocked by the ultra-conservative and controlling way the children have been raised. He grapples with his own faith in God as he tries to mix his mainstream views with the children’s upbringing. Miranda’s prayers are answered in unexpected ways as she and Jack labor to raise children and fight a common enemy. The secrets from both of their pasts could either destroy their budding relationship or bring them closer.
I found this book well written and engaging. I was drawn to read it as fast as I could to find out what would happen to the sweet family depicted. Mrs. Moseley paints a clear picture of the struggles both Miranda and Jack are facing as they seek God’s will for their lives. A great read!
I received this book for free from WaterBrook Multnomah Publishing Group for this review.
