The Bluebird and the Sparrow book review

**The Bluebird and the Sparrow by Janette Oke ... book 1 in the Women of the West Series

Title:  The Bluebird and the Sparrow

Author:  Janette Oke

Genre:  Christian Historical fiction

Plot:  Stern and serious Berta has always been envious of her pretty and likeable sister Glenna. Berta's bitterness has left her feeling unloved and without joy.
 Years later the lives of Berta's sister and mother begin to change. Can Berta accept God's will or will she hold on to what she wants?

What I liked about this book:
 It showed how allowing just a little bit of resentment to take over can affect your life- and those around you- forever.
  Glenna and Berta were well thought out characters that made the story easy to relate to.

What I didn't like about this book:
It could be a little dry at times.

My rating  : 2 . 5


  1. Aw, I remember reading this one. At the time I really enjoyed it, though I suspect if I read it now, I'd have many of the same thoughts as you. :)

  2. Glad you enjoyed this Rissi!
    It is a bit boring at times, but still nice.
