The Sparrow Princess
Russell Whitehead, author
A quest to find true love puts two brothers and two sisters at odds with one another. When an outsider arrives on the scene with her own axe to grind an innocent child is caught in the middle. Magic and mystery, romance and revenge all play a part in this epic fantasy and family saga novella for MG/YA. Set in the imaginary city of Calandra, "The Sparrow Princess" is a tale about choices made and the unforeseen consequences that come from thoughtlessness and an inability to let go of things that were never meant to be. It's about finding love in the most unlikely places and letting go of the past in order to embrace the future.
