Her Children Are All He Has Left.
Reserved contractor Wade Sullivan never expected to fall in love with Starr Parnell or to love her three small kids as if they were his own. But that’s exactly what happened. As their wedding draws near, however, tragedy strikes–and Wade must put aside his own grief in order to help Starr’s children cope.
As Wade focuses his efforts on caring for the children, he discovers that their tender, young lives give tremendous meaning to his own broken one. Then Starr’s abusive ex-husband shows up to claim the offspring who barely remember him–and Wade prepares for the fight of his life.
Will Anyone Believe His Claim to Love the Children More than Their Father Loves Them?
A powerful novel of loss and discovery, courage and grace, A Nest of Sparrows masterfully illustrates one man’s struggle to know when to fight, when to let go, and when to simply wait.

As I have come to expect from a Deborah Raney novel, the characters in this book are so "alive" I caught myself thinking about them after setting the book aside. The inner/outer/spiritual threads are expertly woven, giving the reader an opportunity to experience the heartaches and triumphs with each turn in the story. Fabulous book! I highly recommend A NEST OF SPARROWS.

Grab your Kleenex! It's very hard to grib my emotions so hard I cry. This book does that and more. Get ready to fall in love with this little family. Watching the heartbreak and joy and love this man has for these little ones is such a true picture of our Father's love for us. Deborah Raney takes us on an emotional journey we won't forget.

Deborah Raney has done it again, even better this time, if that were possible! A Nest of Sparrows is a heart-wrenching story of loss, coupled with undying hope for the future. The characters are real, true to life people you might expect to meet in person. The story, while bathed in tragedy, is a realistic portrayal of what could happen in such a situation. Raney has a knack for asking impossible what if questions, and rising to the challenge of answering those questions in believable, yet sometimes surprising ways. A Nest of Sparrows is one of Raneys finest works to date. The writing is superb. Dont miss it!
