I read it quite quickly

For those of you who requested a review of ‘flight of the sparrow’ by Amy Belding Brown I can say I enjoyed it very much.  Amazon delivered the paperback mid afternoon Friday and by bedtime Saturday I had finished it.  I am fond of historical fiction.  ‘flight of the sparrow’ tells the story of Mary Rowlandson, an English-born woman married to a Puritan minister living in 17th century New England and centers on her experience of being held captive by Native  Americans for 11 weeks during the time of conflict called King Phillip’s War (1675-1678) A more serious reader might want to read the account of Mary Rowlandson’s captivity that was published during her lifetime (1682) but I like it when someone else  wades through the period prose for me.  The book was so pleasurable a read that  I am putting the author’s ‘Mr Emerson’s Wife’ on my to read list.
