Listener Opinions

    " Parallel stories in different time periods dealing with the same medical problem. Nicely done. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ruth | 1/1/2014

    " Maureen Lang is such a good storyteller, whether dealing with more serious subjects or writing a straight romance. On Sparrow Hill has two timelines. At first I wasn't sure I was going to like this, but I should have trusted her storytelling abilities. I was quickly caught up in both heroines' stories. Lang's use of language is so good: the Victorian era heroine sounded old-fashioned and formal enough; and the modern day heroine sounded properly British. Two great heroes to complement these heroines, each one quite different from the other, as were the heroines. The book deals with a serious subject, Fragile X, but this doesn't make the book depressing read. It's uplifting because of its strong spiritual message. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Mimi | 12/28/2013

    " Content-wise, it was too tame for my taste but I see how it could appeal to a rather prudish bunch. The book was confusing to follow and I couldn't finish the last thirty pages. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Cindy | 12/9/2013

    " An excellent book. A romance novel but also a story of the emotions of Fragile X being inherited through years and years. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Brenda | 12/7/2013

    " This book was free to me on my ereader. It was good, if you like the style of writing, you will like this book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Della | 10/23/2013

    " Very good book. Enjoyed the historical tale and the modern tale and how they were interwoven. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Audrey Grant | 10/20/2013

    " I liked this one even more than the first one! Thank you for the second that tied the ends of the story together. I love the story from the past even more than the one from the present in some ways even though it was more choppy and left some questions. Good books! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kari | 10/19/2013

    " A good follow up to The Oak Leaves, which I loved. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kimy | 9/29/2013

    " On Sparrow Hill by Maureen Lang is an intriguing book. At first I was frustrated that the story kept going between the different times, but once I got used to every chapter flipping from current to history and back I was able to enjoy the flow. I enjoyed the characters. I will read this book again. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Elizabeth S | 9/24/2013

    " Maureen Lang is one of my favorite authors so this book was long expected. I love Rebecca and even though I did not like Simon very much I warmed up to him by the end. Great book! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Danielle Wiedmier | 9/11/2013

    " Liked it more than the the first one (the Oak Leaves). Easy read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Janeice | 11/5/2012

    " This book like the first one The Oak leaves is very good, it gives an idea of what it is like for a person to have this disease fragile x. How hard it is to face our worst fears and how God can see us through it not matter what the circumstances are. I highly recommend reading this book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Shelly | 9/10/2012

    " A great story of a Historical Home. And the ties from the past and the present "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sandie Mixa | 8/2/2012

    " The sequel to Oak Leaves - was good, esp the ending but I have to say I liked Oak Leaves a little better. This one seemed to drag for me in the middle. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tracy | 11/25/2011

    " Beautifully written!!! Is the sequal to "Oak leaves". Both books touch on "fragile x syndrome" and were wonderful reads! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Marcella | 2/9/2011

    " This was an excellent story. It flowed well from the presant to the past, and was inspiring on so many levels "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Cindy | 1/5/2011

    " I feel that sometimes God directs what I should be reading. Normally, I read books in a shorter period of time, but God's timing and his message to me in this book is timely. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sandy Sandmeyer | 10/28/2010

    " The book was okay. I didn't like the way the story kept switching back and forth from one century to another.The characters were likeable. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Stormi (Lightning Book Promotions) | 12/20/2009

    " I really enjoyed this book, the way that Maureen Lang weaved a story out of the present day and the past using old letters was very interesting and the first time I had read anything like that and it was a very good story. "
