The Language of Sparrows by Rachel Phifer
This book brought me to tears more times than I could count. It is a beautiful story of overcoming sorrow. Fifteen year old Sierra cannot even remember her father who died two years earlier. Why is that? Why is it that an old man in her neighborhood is her only friend? Sierra, her mother, Luca, and his son Nick, and Sierra's mother all have issues to work through. Together, with some prayer, in this beautiful novel they do that. I got this book free to preview from Netgalley. I found it amazing and I highly recommend it.
