Praise forWhen Sparrows Fall

“Rich, deep, and painfully honest.When Sparrows Fallis a lovely work of fiction that portrays a side to American freedoms that is too real to ignore.”
—Cindy Woodsmall, New York Times best-selling author ofWhen the Soul Mends

“Meg Moseley is the diamond in the haystack you’ve been looking for. She’s a rising star who will have a permanent place on my keeper shelf.  In her remarkable debut novel, When Sparrows Fall, Moseley spins a tale of depth, poignancy, and humor. I savored every page and after I turned the last, I simply sat for a while, basking in the aftermath of a story well told.”
—Deanne Gist, author ofMaid to MatchandA Bride Most Begrudging

“Meg Moseley has penned a fantastic debut withWhen Sparrows Fall. It’s a story of darkness and light which she masterfully weaves so tightly, the reader can fully understand just how those seeking God can fall victims to the cult-like practices of false prophets. Still, in this thought-provoking, cautionary tale of extremism, Moseley drops in delightful moments of pure joy. Hers is a fresh new voice that readers—like me—should welcome with open arms.”
—Allison Pittman, author ofLilies in Moonlight

“With her debutWhen Sparrows Fall, Meg Moseley writes with passion and daring about a young woman’s  fight for truth and spiritual freedom providing a brave, new voice in Christian fiction.”
—River Jordan, author ofThe Miracle of Mercy LandandSaints in Limbo

“When a college professor becomes unwitting guardian to a brood of precocious and sheltered home-schoolers, the resulting culture clash is just the tip of the iceberg. Meg Moseley writes with a deft hand, bringing a deep sense of humanity to her struggling, sometimes haunted characters.When Sparrows Fallpacks plenty of surprises, not the least of which is the way grace can break out in the most unexpected places and the hardest of hearts.”
—J. Mark Bertrand, author ofBack on Murder

review by . August 15, 2011
Miranda's husband, Carl, died two years ago, but his influence still hung over her and their six children. As a member of a fringe, ultra conservative, almost cult-like church, Miranda had lived in submission and obedience to her husband, even when his decisions were not always legal. Two years later though, she was still unable to leave the confines of a church that held control over her life with the knowledge of secrets that could cost Miranda her children. However, when her pastor, Mason …
