Although this book had a happy ending, it was so depressing reading the rest of the book that I went around feeling Berta's depressed feeling for several days. If that had been the first Janette Oke book I read, I wouldn't have read any more. Fortunately I've read enough of hers to know that The Bluebird and the Sparrow isn't her normal writing style. Although she puts sorrow in her books, they don't take up the entire book with depressed feelings.
Another great read by Janette Oke. I believe this book stands alone and is not a part of a series. This book takes place during the Victorian era and explores the relationship between two very different sisters.
This was one of my childhood favorite books. Its about the relationship between two sisters and how the same situations are seen differently. Similar to 'Jacob have I Loved' but a happier ending.
This tells the story of two sisters who could not be more opposite. But in the end find they have more in common than they think.
