Book Review: Not a Sparrow Falls by Linda Nichols

The prodigal daughter returns home in this poignant tale of love and redemption.  Mary Bridget has had tragedy in her life which lead to her taking the wrong turn with her boyfriend.  Somehow, her life has ended up on the wrong side of the tracks and she wants out.  Her out is running away and becoming a nanny for a widowed preacher's family.

This is the story of two people needing each other.  No, not Mary and the preacher, though the preacher does need help.  Rather, it's his daughter, Samantha, reaching out for help and it's Mary Bridget who comes to her rescue.  In doing so, she helps herself get closer to God and find her way back home.

There are three points of view going on in the story and Linda Nichols did a good job of intertwining them.  We have Mary Bridget's story, her boyfriend's story, and the preacher's story.  Mary Bridget is the main character and the other two stories help push hers along.

I really enjoyed this story and it has compelled me to look at other books written by Linda Nichols.

I read this book for pure pleasure using the Kindle App on my laptop.  All opinions are my own.  I was not compensated for this review in any way.
