The kids are back in school and moms everywhere may have some spare time to grab a good book. Here is one you may want to add to your fall reading list while the kids are in school.

Sparrow Alone on the Housetop is the new release by authors Jean James and Mary James. It is a fast moving story about family, evil vs. good, and what happens when people with big money and power get greedy. It is the story of the good girl and her evil father. Does a good heart win over greed and money?

Anne Sumner has a heart for the mission field. Leaving her money and family name behind she sets out to improve the life for the poverty stricken in Mexico. At the same time, her powerful and greedy father uses money and corruption to almost destroy both the people that Anne was serving as well as his own family.

The authors do a wonderful job of creating emotional characters that resonate with the reader. Readers will find themselves loving and hating the characters and what they have done. Dialogue, details, emotions, and the real life characteristics of love, greed, and ambition bring the reader into the story from the beginning until the very end. Those who have a greedy or evil family member will relate to how difficult it is to love yet hate someone you should be able to trust and what this does to family relationships.

This story has it all, mystery, suspense, love, death, hate, and forgiveness. The reader will not be disappointed.
