Product Description

Two time periods--Victorian Ireland and contemporary England--are again woven together in this sequel to The Oak Leaves. Rebecca Seabrooke is a commercial manager for Quentin Hollinworth's family manor and is focused on two things: running the best historical home in the country and forgetting about the childhood crush she's had on Quentin ever since her father worked as the valet for his family. They don't, after all, run in the same social circles. When Quentin's distant cousin Dana Martin Walker comes to visit the Hollinworth estate, Rebecca realizes she must confront some of her preconceived ideas about herself . . . and about Quentin. Dana wants to learn more about her ancestors--especially about Berrie Hamilton, who in 1852 decided to fulfill her sister-in-law's dream of opening a school for the mentally challenged. Dana also discovers that, despite their precautions, she and her husband are expecting, and their unborn child may turn out to be like many of Berrie's students. It will take reading Berrie's letters--written a century ago--for Dana and Rebecca to learn the importance of serving others and to realize that ultimately, even our best-laid plans are not always God's plans.

Rebecca Seabrooke is fascinated by more than the Hollinworth family’s house in On Sparrow Hill by Maureen Lang. Rebecca is the curator at ancient Sparrow Hill manor and grounds. Her family has served this British house and family for generations. However, Rebecca has more than a love of history; she also has a crush on her boss, Quentin.

Rebecca’s hard work at Sparrow Hill starts to draw national attention in England, as well as earn Quentin’s personal admiration. But, how can the daughter of a servant ever expect to develop a romantic attachment with the son of a Duke? Suddenly, however, Rebecca discovers a surprising link between Quentin’s long dead ancestors and unraveling events of the current day. These revelations have potential for both danger to the family’s reputation and opportunities for revealing new aspects of the family’s history.

The novel’s overall storyline is interesting but a bit confusing in the beginning due to the ancestor flashbacks. The American relatives of Quentin add a new aspect to the plot. The character development of Rebecca is well done, although she speaks more like an American than someone of British descent. Quentin also has limited British turns of phrases, which is odd for an English aristocrat. Lang’s description of the landscape and house are well done. On Sparrows Hill is a great book to get lost in for people who like a modern setting yet an old world flavor of baronial estates and bygone elegance. -- Khrista Beckmann, Christian Book Previews.com

    It helps if you read the first book in the series before this one, but it's not necessary. It's a nice book. Not too fluffy, not too deep or intense either. Relaxing, and a fairly typical Christian romance.

    This book was really good! I liked how it presented two stories, one contemporary and the other historical, and that together, they made sense and completed one another.
    The fragile X is very well presented in the story without overwhelming the reader with too many details and too much science. This book can definitely be enjoyed by readers of every background and of all ages.
    I also liked the good values that the characters in both stories portrayed.
    Overall, "On Sparrow Hill" is a very enjoyable book! I recommend it!
