Review: When Sparrows Fall & GIVEAWAY!!! *UPDATED*

Jack receives a phone call that he needs to come care for some family members because their mother has had an accident. Jack is thrown off guard because these are the children of his half brother that he barely knew and there are 6 children! He is a professor living a life alone in Chattanooga but now he needs to go back to the small area of Georgia backcountry where he was raised. As if this isn't a precarious enough situation, Jack finds that his widowed sister in law and her children have been living a life without modern culture, even fiction books! As Miranda heals from her fall, she is struggling with Jack's presence and some odd decisions by her pastor, the extremist Mason Chandler. Through trials and misgivings, arguments and new bonds, Jack and Miranda look to find what is best for the children.....

I enjoyed that the book delves into the world of homeschooling. This is obviously a subject near and dear to us. Although pieces and parts of the story are predictable, it is an enjoyable read and there are a few unexpected secrets that come to light. The characters are endearing and the story is as comfortable and warm as the cuddle quilt. As with many Christian books, there are viewpoints that I agreed with, there were a few that I disagreed with. However overall, the book was a fun read.
