Item description for A Sparrow Alone by Alicia Petersen...
Overview Mala walked to the far edge of Bethphage - the end of the village that lay farthest from Jerusalem. As she had done a number of times throughout the years, she left the basket and its contents for the Nameless One. He was Bethphage's only beggar: a dark, large but physically twisted man. He darted from inside, convulsively seized upon the basket, and dragged it into his low hovel. Two Jewish orphans living in a small village attempt to earn their livelihood in Roman-occupied Jerusalem. Mala sews for the wives of wealthy Roman aristocrats and watches in dismay as her brother, Abdon, becomes deeply entrenched in a life of crime. Then, suddenly, the whole village is rocked by the transformation of one of its residents - and the name that seems to be on everyone's lips.

A Sparrow Alone is GREAT book! Jul 17, 2005
This book is a wonderful book and I would suggest it to anyone! I am a teacher in a Christian elementary school and I look forward to sharing this book with my class every year. This fiction book tells a captivating story about the life of a theif and his sister. This thief is the one who later asks Christ to be remembered in Paradise while being crucified on the cross along side Him. It is a great story that will keep you wondering what is going to happen next!
