'The Sparrow is one of my favourite science fiction novels and it destroyed me in the best way when I read it. It is so beautifully written and the construction of the narrative is masterful.' Emma Newman, acclaimed author of Planetfall Set in the 21st century - a number of decades from now - The Sparrow is the story of a charismatic Jesuit priest and talented linguist, Emilio Sandoz, who - in response to a remarkable radio signal from the depths of space - leads a scientific mission to make first contact with an extraterrestrial culture. In the true tradition of Jesuit adventurers before him, Sandoz and his companions are prepared to endure isolation, suffering - even death - but nothing can prepare them for the civilisation they encounter. Or for the tragic misunderstanding that brings the mission to a devastating end. Once considered a living saint, Sandoz returns alone to Earth horrifically maimed, both physically and spiritually, the mission's sole survivor - only to be blamed for the mission's failure and accused of heinous crimes. Written in clean, effortless prose and peopled with memorable characters who never lose their humanity or humour, The Sparrow is a powerful, haunting fiction - a tragic but ultimately triumphant novel about the nature of faith, of love and what it means to be 'human' and widely considered to be a classic of the genre.

But they were not about her. . . . Whenever ladies came to the house or met her mother on the street, they exclaimed over Berta's little sister, Glenna.

One day, as I was walking in the forest, I sat down to rest. Looking around I saw a big spider spinning his web. When I looked around I saw many webs, but they all seemed to belong to this particular spider. The days were getting cooler and the spider wanted to catch as many bugs before the winter snows. High above the spider’s web, a little sparrow was flying home to his nest, when a big hawk swooped down on him. Surprised by this sudden attack, the little sparrow fought for his life. When the hawk’s claws lifted him high in the air, he turned and struck the hawk with his sharp little beak. Momentarily stunned, the hawk dropped the sparrow who fell and disappeared amongst the trees in the forest.

Imagine a forgotten game of hide and seek. Imagine the days pass and the years, and you forget you're in hiding.... She remembered her mother saying that God knew the name of even the tiniest sparrow and watched over each and every one. And she wondered how God had lost them, how he could not see what was happening to the children in this house. They were the children who had become invisible to God. Somehow they had become hidden in the shadow of a tiny bird. As a child, Robyn Miller had traded Jesus and his angels for Superman. The stars of Sunday school had been called upon many times, after all, and had not lived up to their reputation. By turning her back on them, she showed the angels just how disappointed she was in them for not delivering her from the terrifying circumstances that seemed to forever separate her from the rest of the world. It would be a long time before Robyn would be required to glimpse their presence once again. And that day was growing closer.... Headstrong reporter Robyn Miller has found herself in the middle of a story even she finds hard to believe. As she unravels disturbing truths and encounters the extent to which some will go to keep her quiet, she soon realizes the most chilling story she will ever uncover is her own. In her first novel, In the Shadow of the Sparrow, award-winning journalist Gloria Hillard tells the story of a reporter who investigates her missing childhood and discovers the source of her recurring nightmares only to find herself caught up in an ancient battle between light and dark. "As in "Silence of the Lambs," our heroine must face her fears...Tension-filled and leaves us inspired by the hope that justice will prevail." -- JennieLew Tugend, Producer "Free Willy" and "Return To Me." "A wonderful writer." -- Ann Rule, New York Times Bestselling author.
