Publisher's Description

Sometimes she wished she was an only child . . .

"She's lovely! Look at those curls. Those blue eyes. She's just beautiful!"

Berta was used to hearing comments like that. But they were not about her. . . . Whenever ladies came to the house or met her mother on the street, they exclaimed over Berta's little sister, Glenna.

Somewhere along the way, Berta decided that whatever Glenna was, she would not be. Whatever Glenna did, she would not do. Whatever Glenna liked, she would not like. She would be the opposite.

Sure enough, Glenna is sparkling, vivacious, outgoing, and adored, while Berta is serious, dependable, and prim. Their relationship grows more and more distant until, finally, Berta must look into her heart and discover what truly has caused the rift between them.

    Typical Berta: "There was such a contrast between her life and Glennas. Glenna had it all. Looks and yes, her prettiness had made life easy for her. [] Suddenly Berta rose and tossed the letter on the small table beside her chair. Life was so desperately uneven. It made her angry."

    Berta always knew her younger sister Glenna got the most attention. Glenna was the pretty and happy one. No one could help liking her from the start. Berta, she was just plain. Plain and unnoticed. Already as a kid she decided that she would be the total opposite of Glenna. Year after year, shed ignore the fact that Glenna had it all and would live her own life, however empty it seemed to be. But as God reaches out to Bertas heart, she learns that whatever the circumstances are she can love and be loved.

    This was the second time I read the book and I cried anyway. "The Bluebird and the Sparrow" is a beautiful tale of how attitude and choices determine someones character more than circumstances. For years, Berta has believed she isnt loved, that Glenna was loved more because she was so pretty. It takes a lot for her to understand that she can be loved just the way she is.
