Flight of the Sparrow

When we are taken from what we love and must make our way among strangers, we find our core values and our place in the world challenged.

Mary Rowlandson and her four children were captured during King Philip’s War in 1675. As a captive, Mary began to question the harsh edicts of her Puritan upbringing and her own identity. This is a phenomenal book that explores the history between the lines of Mary’s official narrative.

If you have read Someone Knows My Name, Caleb’s Crossing, The Widow’s War, or The Winthrop Woman I recommend this read.
