Overview

In this short story by Jason Mott, author of The Returned, one determined couple seeks to reunite a young girl with the father who thought he had lost her forever...

When Heather and Matt Campbell find ten-year-old Tatiana Rusesa on the side of the highway, she is thousands of miles away from her village in Sierra Leone. She hasn't seen her family in almost two decades, not since she and her mother were killed by rebel soldiers. Now Tatiana has inexplicably returned, a lost orphan with no place to call home.

As the world dives deeper into uncertainty and chaos, Heather is determined to save Tatiana and help her find her way back to her family. But how much is she willing to lose to protect a girl she doesn't even know?

Learn how the mysterious reappearances begin in The First, and don't miss Jason Mott's unforgettable debut novel, The Returned, from Harlequin MIRA, a moving tale of a family navigating this unusual new reality and given a second chance at life.

The Sparrow is a not a zombie story where the dead return, but the dead are returning. This is an uplifting tale about a young girl from Sierra Leone. The writing was beautiful and the story compelling.

This prequel was actually a more thrilling read than the novel The Returned. It had solid characters that you really connected to.

A small glimpse into the book The Returned. One of the best books I have read in a long time.

This is the second of three e short prequels to Jason Mott's THE RETURNED. In "The Sparrow" a young couple finds Tatiana, a girl who died in 1994 (we also meet her in one of the Returned stories in the book itself). The impact Tatiana has on the couple that finds her is great but her own story remains much of a mystery.  This was my favorite of the three, possibly because I liked Tatiana so much.  (As with the other two, this short does include an excerpt of THE RETURNED.)

This could be so much better if there were more to it.
