A Sparrow Alone
Look inside this book
Alicia Petersen’s historical fiction book A Sparrow Alone is set in first century Jerusalem. The lives of two Jewish teens are changed forever by the malicious death of their parents at the hands of soldiers in Roman-occupied Jerusalem. Seventeen-year-old Mala sews for the wives of Roman aristocrats and seeks comfort in the hope of a coming Messiah; her older brother Abdon is consumed with anger and joins a renegade band committed to acts of treachery. In this Christian fiction book, the village is shaken when one of its citizens is transformed and the claims of Jesus of Nazareth must be considered.

Rated 5 out of 5 by This is a GREAT book! I was 13 when I read this book. Before this I hadn't really enjoyed reading. This book is very interesting, once you start reading it you won't be able to put it down! It is also very Biblically sound. The author doesn't just state the principles, she applies them to the characters lives in a real way that is also applicable to your own spiritual life. I think this book is a must read for teen girls! December 15, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent Read!! A Sparrow Alone is a wonderful novel!! I found it really hard to put the book down! Alicia Petersen did a good job helping me feel Mala's despair and loneliness. I rejoiced at her hope in the unexpected and interesting end! Great teen novel!!! September 2, 2015
