REVIEW: Flight of the Sparrow by Amy Belding Brown

Follow the inspired by true lift story of Puritan settler Mary Rowlandson.  Set in 1670-something in the Massachusetts Bay Colony, 1676, Mary and two of her children were taken captive by a Native American tribe.  Mary finds the experience difficult but freeing, compared to the strict Puritan customs of the time.  Her time with the Indians alters her life and her perception of the Native Americans.

At the end of the story, the author reveals all the sources she researched to pull together the story.  I appreciate all the work she has done to create this glimpse into an Puritan woman/mother’s life in early colonial times.
