Book Review: Not a Sparrow Falls by Linda Nichols

"She knew enough to bide her time. A day went by, then another, then a week, then two. Finally, when all the necessary pieces came together, it took her a few minutes to realize that this was it. The chance she'd been waiting for." Not a Sparrow Falls, pg 23.

Mary Bridget Washburn is tired of the direction that her life has taken. She's tired of the drug culture that she's become part of. She's tired of the empty shell of her life. So, she escapes. She hides behind her mother's name, and assuming this new identity sets herself up as "the girl next door" in Alexandria, Virginia. But she can't escape her past. And a young girl's plea to God gives her a new purpose. Can God really use someone with her past to help bring together a family that is falling apart?

I really enjoyed this novel. Linda Nichols did a wonderful job developing her characters and giving them life on the page. I felt with them, struggled with them, and learned more about myself through their struggles. not a sparrow falls is a story of hope and facing your demons. It is also a story of faith and prayer. God is bigger than the circumstances of our lives and he is always ready to forgive and use us again.

I would highly recommend this book.

(I received a complimentary copy of this book for the purpose of review.)
