Recommended for: Renata, Sally
Read in March, 2009

A very good sequel to her extraordinary first novel, "The Sparrow". Nothing like a good wrestling with religious, sociological and ethical questions, set on an alien planet with a very well thought out society of it's own.

Marlene Greteman hmmm sounds like I need to read this


Karen Marlene - You should probably read "The Sparrow" first. I didn't directly recommend it to you since I didn't know how you felt about a strong "speculative fiction" component. But it's an extraordinarily good book, especially if you were raised Catholic.

I'll definitely read The Sparrow first - and Children of God after - sounds very interesting and right up my alley...thanks
