    This is a truely wonderful book! There are parts that make you cry. I have not read a book by Deborah Raney that I have not loved, I only hope she keeps on writing. Usually you read books where mothers are fighting for their children, but here it is just the opposite. Please read this book--you will not be dissapointed!

    What An Awesome Story!

    When Wade¿s fiancé dies and leaves three needy children, he knows he has no choice but to fight for custody. First, because their natural father is a violent, nasty man; and second, because Wade loves those kids like his own. Grab a tissue and settle in for one of the best love stories you¿ll ever read. No wonder this story has been nominated for a RITA award -- I highly recommend it.

    A book you won't want to put down.

    Deb Raney's story has so many facets--it's drama, it's romance, it's suspense. Grab some tissues and settle in for a long, heartwarming read. I highly recommend this book.

    A Lovingly Hopeful Read

    Deb Raney's books do not disappoint! Having read several, I dove into 'Nest of Sparrows' without trepidation. I was wise as this is a very enjoyable, balanced, tale of Wade, a young man left with three children of his departed fiance's. Gladly he accepts them, though life is harried and crazed at the beginning. Just when they are all settling in a surprise visitor comes knocking.....the children's biological father! What ensues takes the reader through gambits of emotions as conversations, similes, adjectives, adverbs are so well written the pursuer cannot help but be affected. The infusion of Hope is paramount, making this read uplifting even though the premise is very deep. 'Nest of Sparrows' combines all that is good about storytelling; reading this book is an experience you don't want to miss.

    Kleenex are a must...

    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.

    Superb Writing, Wonderful Tale

    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 Raney¿s finest works to date. The writing is superb. Don¿t miss it!

    Deborah Raney has delivered again! Nest of Sparrows is a riveting yet tender read that explores an issue that is so prevalent today. From page one she captures your heart and takes you on a wonderful, memorable journey through the struggle of one man for the children that he loves. Raney's writing is flawless and she deals with sensitive issues in an authentic and credible way.

    No a predictable ending

    Excellent story. This book held my interest all the way through, as there was not a predictable end. I found it to be very realistic. The author's writings seemed to paint a picture that made me feel like I was seeing the interactions amongst the characters.
