Overview

On Sparrow Hill by Maureen Lang

Two time periods—Victorian Ireland and contemporary England—are again woven together in this sequel to The Oak Leaves. Rebecca Seabrooke is a commercial manager for Quentin Hollinworth's family manor and is focused on two things: running the best historical home in the country and forgetting about the childhood crush she's had on Quentin ever since her father worked as the valet for his family. They don't, after all, run in the same social circles. When Quentin's distant cousin Dana Martin Walker comes to visit the Hollinworth estate, Rebecca realizes she must confront some of her preconceived ideas about herself . . . and about Quentin. Dana wants to learn more about her ancestors—especially about Berrie Hamilton, who in 1852 decided to fulfill her sister-in-law's dream of opening a school for the mentally challenged. Dana also discovers that, despite their precautions, she and her husband are expecting, and their unborn child may turn out to be like many of Berrie's students. It will take reading Berrie's letters—written a century ago—for Dana and Rebecca to learn the importance of serving others and to realize that ultimately, even our best-laid plans are not always God's plans.

LOVED this book. Didn't want it to end. Great transition from Oak Leaves. Lovely story of God's presence and promises.

I just finished reading both books and had been extremelly impresed on how the author was able to develop such a difficult theme into a possitive learning experience and the relation she was able to trace together withing past and present and the beautiful involvement of God throughout both books. These books are amazing.

I read the first book on this series and liked it so much that I decided to read the second one. Like the first book, this story is very well written and keeps the reader interested in what´s going to happen next. I like the way the author goes back and forth between the characters that lived in old England and the contemporary characters. I highly recommend it!

When reading Maureen Lang¿s book, On Sparrow Hill, one feels like you are ¿there¿ living the events along with the characters. Empathy, excitement, intrigue, love, and excitement are just a few words that describe feelings evoked. Ms. Lang has the ability to weave and unfold a story involving the past and the present leaving the reader wanting to know the result of how they come together. One feels empathy while reading of the fears and challenges of raising a special needs child. A delightful addition is the word pictures painted such as the ¿cuddle farm¿ where the sheep live. Wonderful reading!

This is a wonderful book to follow 'Oak Leaves.' I went through a whole range of emotions while reading 'On Sparrow Hill': happiness, sadness, conviction, being challenged, etc. Great romance, too! I will read this again and again!

Okay I admit I took one look at the cover and thought to myself, 'oh its one of those stories' it looked like a soft romance story and well I love romance but I normally like a little action in mine. I will admit that I really liked this story once Quinten and Rebecca found the old letters and it transformed us back in time. I really thought that Maureen Lang handled the switching back and forth from historical setting to modern day very well, not once did I fill confused and I was always interested to see what was going on in both settings. I liked the use of the fragile X from the past coming into the future with Dana's sister kid, it brought it to life more having it in both settings. I loved the story about Quentin(high class) and Rebecca(lower class) and how they got past the class differences. Over all it was a great story and I really didn't want it to end. Two thumbs up :)

This was an okay book - good insight on the way "mentally diminished" people were treated. And, the book had a good ending. It isn't the usual genre I read, but I did enjoy it.

What I liked about this story was how every character showed their faith in God and used that faith to shape their lives. They left all of their problems, worries, and future in the hands of God knowing he had everything planned out for them. What I didn't like in the book was the character Katie. Even after knowing what kind of person she was and knowing her problem, her character seemed to get annoying, especially when she was part of a problem that occured in the story.

A wonderfully, sweet Christian story that proves that God has a path for us all.

After reading The Oak Leaves by Maureen Lang, I was delighted to find the sequel, On Sparrow Hill. In another parallel story, Maureen Lang uses Cosima's letters from 1849 to bring the news of the family affliction to more of her current day ancestors in contemporary England. Can they rise above the family curse to find lasting happiness that only faith in God can bring? I personally recommend this book. It is more than a love story with a lesson on leaning on God.
