What I Really Liked About Sparrows: There is much to like, but four things stand out. First, Bennett does a great job with his history. He completely nails the food shortage and scarcity of the Confederate Army, as well as

3.5 of 5 stars – Heartwarming Story of Devout, Conflicted Confederate Protecting a Slave.
[I'm excited to have won this as a Goodreads First Read – so thanks, Paul!]

I enjoyed that this book addressed this head on, and in a way that generally got past typical stereotypes and exp

I received this book through the Goodreads First Reads Giveaway.
I first want to thank Paul Bennett for signing the copy of the book that I received. I have my bachelor's degree in English and always dreamed of being sent books in order to review them, so I am happy for this opportunity. I also have my master's in History, so historical fiction has a special place in my heart.

This book was an enjoyable read, although I found some of the aspects hard to believe, and not necessarily historically

I just finished reading Paul Bennett's "A Fall of Sparrows". I loved it. The story took place during the civil war, and it's the story of a Confederate sharpshooter, Will Seymour. He got separated from his group of soldiers, and faced many obstacles before he was reunited with them. I could not put the book down. It was that good!

Very well written book - the insights into the soldier's struggles of faith and loyalty made the story even more engaging. My respect for my friend, Paul Bennett, now extends to his superb writing as well.

This book reminds us that God's ways are not always ours and showstopper us that our faith grows when we step out and do what God tells us to do. We see through the main character that if we are obedient, God can change our heart.

This is an excellent novel of the American Civil War. I think that it explains the motivations for both sides well. The action is gripping. The characters are easy to relate to, and the work is filled with solid morals. Also, one has to appreciate the historical detail-- particularly with regard to the firearms.
