On Sparrow Hill
By Maureen Lang
As the commercial manager for Quentin Hollinworth’s family estate, Rebecca Seabrooke is focused on just two things: making hers the most successful historic home in the country and forgetting the childhood crush she’s had on Quentin since her father worked as his family’s valet. After all, they don’t exactly run in the same social circles.
I hoped to portray in On Sparrow Hill that God doesn't love any of us less than He loves others - whether we have a disability or are from a so-called "inferior" class. We're all precious to Him.
Why the author wrote this book:
This is the follow-up book to The Oak Leaves, although it can be read independently. I wrote it simply because I couldn't bear parting with some of the characters - particularly Berrie Hamilton, who is the heroine of the historical thread in On Sparrow Hill. I also had fun revisiting Dana from The Oak Leaves. Sometimes characters just demand their own books, you know? I was happy to indulge them, because it gave me a chance to explore such things as schools for the handicapped in Victorian times, and modern day class clashes still alive and well in England today.
