The Sparrow Sisters: A Novel

We rated this book:


The Sparrow family has resided in Granite Point for many generations, and Patience and her sisters, Sorrel and Nettie, are the only ones left. Patience is known around town as the local healer, helping friends and neighbors with ailments of all kinds by creating remedies with the plants grown in the nursery the sisters run. The townspeople depend on Patience, and the new doctor can’t resist her charms either. But when a local boy dies and some of Patience’s plants may have been involved, much of the town turns on the sisters… and then nature seems to turn on Granite Point. Will the town be able to save itself before it’s too late?

Ellen Herrick’s new novel The Sparrow Sisters is a fantastic story depicting a modern-day witch hunt. The men of Granite Point quickly turn on Patience, but eventually the women band together to try to change things. These two reactions help the novel show how people can be ugly or supportive and unconditionally loving to one another. The viewpoint changes throughout the book, with Patience and Dr. Henry Carlyle being the primary storytellers. With an indescribably compelling story, believable characters, and an intriguing setting, The Sparrow Sisters is a great novel to get lost in.
