January 15, 2009. Hudson River, New York City. Robby Palmer, a
12-year-old boy with autism, witnesses the "Miracle on the Hudson"
from a sightseeing ferry and becomes obsessed with the birds that
caused the plane crash. Passengers Deborah and Christopher are
trying to escape their infertility struggle when Flight 1549
plunges them into the icy river. Preacher's wife Brett Stevens has
hidden a secret for years. She's aboard the ferry, too, where the
eye of a TV camera threatens to expose her. Their lives intersect
in Sparrow Migrations, the braided narrative of ordinary people
transformed by an extraordinary event - and by each other. Sparrow
Migrations was a semifinalist in the 2011 Amazon Breakthrough Novel
Award contest. In a review of contest manuscripts, Publishers
Weekly said: "The plot lines are sophisticated, the characters
intricately drawn, and the book has a remarkably strong voice...
brimming with humanity and grace."
