It's the summer before seventh grade, and twelve-year- old Raine O'Rourke's mother suddenly takes a job hours from home at mysterious Sparrow Road- a creepy, dilapidated mansion that houses an eccentric group of artists. As Raine tries to make sense of her new surroundings, she forges friendships with a cast of quirky characters including the outrageous and funky Josie.

Together, Raine and Josie decide to solve the mysteries of Sparrow Road-from its haunting history as an orphanage to the secrets of its silent, brooding owner, Viktor. But it's an unexpected secret from Raine's own life that changes her forever.

An affecting and beautifully written story of family and forgiveness, Sparrow Road is an incredible gift.

"Shelia O'Connor's book about the importance of love, loyalty and dreams, charmed me...Sparrow Road is quite wonderful and I recommend it highly." -Karen Cushman, author of the Newbery-winning The Midwife's Apprentice and the Newbery Honor book Catherine, Called Birdy
