Flight of the Sparrow

FLIGHT OF THE SPARROW, by Amy Belding Brown, is a novel of Early America.  I have one copy for giveaway compliments of the generous people at New American Library, a division of Penguin Books. Please leave a comment at  the end of my post to be entered to win. I will choose one winner on Monday, July 28th. Only U.S. addresses, and no P.O. boxes, please. Good luck!

Massachusetts Bay Colony, 1676.  Even before Mary Rowlandson was captured by Indians on a winter day of violence and terror, she’d been at odds with her strict Puritan Community. With her home destroyed, and her children lost to her, Mary found herself dealing with unbelievable acts of brutality and unending kindness. 

All of her life Mary was taught to fear God, submit to her husband, and abhor Indians. Now, having lived on the “other” side of the forest, she begins to question edicts that have guided her, torn between the life she knew and the wisdom the natives have shown her. 

Based on compelling true narrative of Mary Rowlandson, FLIGHT OF THE SPARROW is an evocative tale that transports the reader to a little-known time in early America and explores the real meaning of freedom, faith, and acceptance.

  1. This sounds like an interesting story of early America. I like that it is based on an actual person. Thanks for the giveaway.

  2. Historical fiction is a favorite …I grew up in Massachusetts and always enjoy reading about the lives of the early settlers

  3. Mary’s story told from the “other” side sounds intriguing. Since I love stories about early American life, I would live to read this book. And winning it as a giveaway would be an added bonus.

  4. This book sounds captivating; for years, I’ve been trying to track down rumors of my great grandmother being of Native American descent. This story is very much a book I’d like to dive into. Thanks for the giveaway opportunity.
