The Truth About Sparrows

Marian Hale

Sadie doesn't want a new life; her old one suits her just fine. But times are hard in drought-plagued Missouri, and Daddy thinks they'll be better off in Texas. It's tough for Sadie to give up her beloved home for this strange place, where even children clean shrimp at the cannery to help make ends meet and where people are rude to her disabled father. Yet when trouble comes, it is the kindness of these new neighbors that helps the family through. And no one helps more than Dollie, a red-headed chatterbox of a girl who just might become a good friend-if Sadie gives her half a chance. Lyrical and vibrant, this is an unforgettable first novel about the true meaning of home.
