A Nest of Sparrows
By Deborah Raney
Genre: Christian fiction
5/5 chickadees singing! I enjoyed this book so much more than I expected to. I thought it would be predictable, but instead, it was more realistic.
Wade’s fiancée dies suddenly and he unofficially keeps her three kids living with him and tries to make single fatherhood work. Their biological father, who hasn’t seen the kids in years because their mother left due to domestic violence, comes back for them. Social services decides both dads need some help before either can parent so the children go into foster care. Point of view switches back and forth between the children’s aunt, Wade, and the social worker.
This book made you feel so many emotions of the characters. I loved how realistic it was. I also loved that there was at least some redemption for the “villain(s).” It was a very engaging story with positive messages. A definite must-read for fans of Christian fiction.
