For many, a nursing home is the despised last stop before heading out into the Great Beyond. Not so for the heroines of The Song of Sadie Sparrow-three very different women whose lives intersect in a warm and endlessly engaging facility called The Hickories. Sadie Sparrow, Meg Vogel and Elise Chapelle represent different generations. They have experienced different sorrows and entertain different hopes. They even adhere to different worldviews, from devoutly Christian to unapologetically atheist. Yet over the course of a single year, they forge unlikely bonds that impact each other's lives in the here and now-and perhaps for all eternity. A beautifully written story of friendship set against the backdrop of life's twilight years, The Song of Sadie Sparrow explores contrasting views of purpose and pardon, life and afterlife-and faith's role in shaping those views, now and forevermore.
