The Sparrow by Kristy McCaffrey

In Grand Canyon, Emma Hart braves the unknown and the sudden appearance of Texas Ranger Nathan Blackmore.

"Readers will love the story..." ~ RT Book Reviews

In 1877, Emma Hart comes to Grand Canyon--a wild, rugged, and, until recently, undiscovered area. Plagued by visions and gifted with a second sight, she searches for answers about the tragedy of her past, the betrayal of her present, and an elusive future that echoes through her very soul. Joined by her power animal Sparrow, she ventures into the depths of Hopi folklore, forced to confront an evil that has lived through the ages.

Texas Ranger Nathan Blackmore tracks Emma Hart to the Colorado River, stunned by her determination to ride a wooden dory along its course. But in a place where the ripples of time run deep, he'll be faced with a choice. He must accept the unseen realm, the world beside this world, that he turned away from years ago, or risk losing the woman he has come to love more than life itself.

A steamy historical western romance set in 1877 Arizona Territory.

2012 Winter Rose WINNER ~ Excellence in Romantic Fiction, Historical Division

"Ancient Hopi and Havasupai legends have a new voice in McCaffrey. Her inspired writing made her main character's mystical journey into another realm entirely believable and kept the pages turning long into the night." ~ Melanie Tighe, City Sun Times (Arizona)

"The author has really done her homework as far as the scenes with rafting, the clothing of the period, and the descriptions of the Grand Canyon." ~ John Tucker, author of The Little Girl You Kissed Goodnight

"...a thoroughly enjoyable read..." ~ David Andrews, author of Coasting and The Sapphire Sea

All of her work is filled with compelling heroes, determined heroines, and her trademark mysticism. Life is a wondrous endeavor, and she strives to bring that sense of awe and joy into the tales she weaves, along with in-depth research into settings and time periods. Kristy holds a bachelor's and master's degree in mechanical engineering, but writing has been her passion since she was very young. Her four children are nearly grown and gone, so she and her husband frequently pursue their love of travel to the far corners of the world. Kristy believes life should be lived with curiosity, compassion, and gratitude, and one should never be far from the enthusiasm of a dog. She also likes sleeping-in, eating Mexican food, and doing yoga at home in her pajamas. An Arizona native, she resides in the desert north of Phoenix.

After reading Wren and Dove I was very disappointed in the Sparrow. Not sure what the two will hold. Did not like it. Save your money.......

This was a different sort of story about mysticism and other worlds and good and evil. Now the Grand Canyon is definitely on my bucket list.

Good read but has a lot of description that makes it too wordy

I really liked the book. It was much different from the first 2 and that is what I liked. A bit sci-fi but I liked it. At times it did get a bit long but overall I loved the story about Emma and Nathan.

After reading the first two books in this series I was excited for the third. What a total disppointment! This book ruined the character of Nathan that was developed in the other books. I quit reading about half way through and will not read the last book. Ruined a good thing!!!

I won a copy of this book from the author. I was not asked to give a favorable review. All thoughts are my own. This is the 3rd book in the series and brings another sister, an friend into the mix. The writing in the book brings the areas that they travel so vivid. I have problems putting it down. See the Grand Canyon long before it became a vacation spot must have seen it in it's true beauty. The travels and of both Nathan and Emma brought them closer both as friends an then more. They shared a bound that made both of them stronger, and also made them able to help others. I am looking forward to reading book 4 & 5. Thank you for such wonderful writing an giving such details of the areas you write about.

Enjoyed the first two, but this one was too much "out there".
