Book Review: When Sparrows Fall by Meg Mosely

When Sparrows FallWhen Sparrows Fall by Meg Moseley

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I enjoyed reading this book.  The story is engaging as Miranda (Randi) a mother of six struggles to cope with raising six children as a widow, her overbearing Pastor and the involvement of her brother in law that she doesn't know. I love how she sticks to her principles for the things she feels strongly about, as well as allowing some latitude on the things she's used to doing but are not written in stone.  The author does a great job of describing each of the children as well as giving a great foundation for where the main character is in life.

The title of the book confused me.  I'm not sure how it fit with the subject of the book.  There were a few references to sparrows, but I didn't sense an underlying connection. It could have had something to do with a tragedy that occurred but that's as close as I can get.

What a liked most about this book is the way the author brought the whole story together.  Throughout she alluded to deeper secrets but didn't give them away until towards the end.  This kept me engaged and curious to know what happened.  There was a Christian theme throughout the book, although in the beginning it leaned towards the fanatical and evened out towards the end.

Overall, a nice, easy read.  I would recommend for anyone who has experienced children, tragedies and life in general!
