A historical novel based on the life of Mary Rowlandson “An authentic drama of Indian captivity…A compelling, emotionally gripping tale.”—Eliot Pattison, author of the Mystery of Colonial America series She suspects that she has changed too much to ever fit easily into English society again. The wilderness has now become her home. She can interpret the cries of birds. She has seen vistas that have stolen away her breath. She has learned to live in a new, free way.... Massachusetts Bay Colony, 1676. Even before Mary Rowlandson was captured by Indians on a winter day of violence and terror, she sometimes found herself in conflict with her rigid Puritan community. Now, her home destroyed, her children lost to her, she has been sold into the service of a powerful woman tribal leader, made a pawn in the ongoing bloody struggle between English settlers and native people. Battling cold, hunger, and exhaustion, Mary witnesses harrowing brutality but also unexpected kindness. To her confused surprise, she is drawn to her captors’ open and straightforward way of life, a feeling further complicated by her attraction to a generous, protective English-speaking native known as James Printer. All her life, Mary has been taught to fear God, submit to her husband, and abhor Indians. Now, having lived on the other side of the forest, she begins to question the edicts that have guided her, torn between the life she knew and the wisdom the natives have shown her. Based on the compelling true narrative of Mary Rowlandson, Flight of the Sparrow is an evocative tale that transports the reader to a little-known time in early America and explores the real meanings of freedom, faith, and acceptance.

While growing up on a Texas ranch, Robert Baker nurtured dreams of becoming a veterinarian. But when fate led him to a navy recruiters office in 1961, Bob embarked on a new journey that would eventually lead him to places and into situations he never could have imagined. In his memoir, Bob shares details from his experiences before, during, and after his service aboard the USS Coral Sea, an attack aircraft carrier equipped with a missile system so progressive that Americas newest and most sophisticated fighter aircraft was designed around it. As he leads others through his childhood to the rigors of boot camp and eventually to the USS Coral Sea, Bob offers a compelling glimpse into his emotions as life led him aboard the colossal warship that would soon simultaneously cross the Equator and International Date Line and transport her crew to Vietnam to carry out Operation Rolling Thunder. The Flight of the Sparrow shares the true story of one mans incredible journey from childhood to an aircraft carrier serviceman as he and his fellow sailors carried out a secret mission during the Vietnam War.

I found myself at the wrong place at the wrong time. And because of that, I was now considered collateral damage to the Preacher Brothers.So I was taken, thrown in the back of a dark SUV, with a bleeding, dying man draped over my lap, and my future uncertain. I didn't expect to live at the end of this ordeal, not with everything I'd seen, not when I could identify them.But despite my fear of what my future held, I couldn't help but feel this connection to the man whose life hung by a thread.Wilder Preacher.He's mysterious as much as he's dangerous. He's gorgeous in a severe, almost brutal manner. And although his brothers terrify me, I could see how much they loved him, as their worry for his life was thick.I could see the lengths they'd go to not lose him, even if that included taking me as a hostage.I'd never known that, never had that familial tie where I mattered that much to someone.And when Wilder woke up, I felt that connection increase until it threatened to consume me. He looked at me like I was the air he breathed, the blood that rushed through his veins. He told me he'd seen me as he was on the verge of dying, that it was my voice, my touch that made him want to stay.He said I'm tethered to him now, his lifeline... that he won't let me go.I should run, should put all this behind me. And maybe I would.... Or maybe I'd been drawn into Wilder's dark eyes and deep voice until I have no control over my emotions and have no chance of leaving. It's all so crazy, but then again, it's not as insane as the fact that I don't want to leave him now.
