Overview

Are the footsteps getting louder?

A gripping tale of a young girl romanced by two worlds. In one there is the allure of power, and in the other, the love of someone who'd value her for more than her body.

A ward of the state at nine years old, Sparrow finds herself living with her half brother and the sister-in-law who didn't want her—or the curse she came with.

She drops out of high school just before graduation, desperate for a way to support herself before she turns eighteen. Sparrow accepts a job bussing tables at a bar and ends up on stage before the night ends.

The money is irresistible when it brings the possibility of controlling her future. But before long, she witnesses a dancer strangled and loses every dime she's earned. She tries to find a simpler job, but no opportunity can outrun the curse. Now, she can hear the footsteps behind her, too.

In attempt to grasp fleeting hope, she decides to confront the one who cursed her in the first place—her grandfather.

"Hilarey Johnson doesn't settle for easy stereotypes. Sovereign Ground is a tale of clashing cultures and competing fears. In the middle of the action are the voices of those lost in human trafficking. This tale and those voices should not be ignored."

Christian fiction that doesn't paint an unrealistic view of life, or the church. This novel deals with the perils of the sex industry in a way that is respectful to these women and asks the question, "how do we reach these women?" Well written, and with a side of spiritual warfare.

I have no way of knowing if this story painted a realistic picture or not. But, what I do know is that it kept me thoroughly engaged from beginning to end. Loooved that the Gospel was the deepest foundation of this novel.
