An airplane plunges into an icy river and the world witnesses the dramatic rescue. Then, life after the Miracle on the Hudson landing puts three families on another crash course...with their own fragile humanity.
Airplane passenger Deborah DeWitt-Goldman knows her survival means one last chance to start the family she so badly desires - no matter the cost to her marriage. Preacher's wife Brett Stevens witnesses the event from a ferry, burdened by a secret that could destroy her family. And while twelve-year-old Robby Palmer's desperate parents struggle to reach through the fog of his autism, the boy discovers a deep connection to the birds responsible for the crash.
Now, all of them must navigate the crosscurrents of the consequences of their decisions...and when their paths collide a second time, another miracle just might happen.
Award-winning author Cari Noga's Sparrow Migrations is an inspiring, heartfelt look at the crucible of crisis and the power of human connection.

This is a good read. The story held me to the end, had some good twists and was an interesting exploration of what can come of majot events in people's lives. Definitely entertaining and interesting. I got involved with the characters and their lives.
"I couldn't get beyond the first 4 hours"
It seemed to move sooo slowly. I would like to have found out what happened to some of the characters but couldn't make myself wade through any longer
"Three stories intersect with one plane crash."
The narrator did a great job with different voices for each character. Loved how the writer intertwined the three story lines.
I am struggling to bother. I'm interested in some of the characters situations, but I'm finding several things presented to be confusing; there seems to be no logical reasoning behind a few actions... the writing style is a little boring, in a way that says this writer was just trying so hard to interject certain knowledge and little expressions that should have just been edited out. If it doesn't enhance the story somehow, a character's remembering the term "passenger manifest" is just adding words and making me roll my eyes; this type of interjection seems to be habitual and is what I come to expect from a teenage writer.
The performance isn't really a performance; it is more of a reading. I have not yet felt any heart go into the story telling, although the narrator is switching up some accents in an attempt to make it interesting I supose, but it's not clear if it's really a good fit for the character. That feeling of knowing who and what the characters are about just isn't there... that is likely to do with the writing, since a narrator also has to work off what they got.
oh well... I'm going to keep pushing though and see how this goes.
Not my usual genre . I took it as a free book and one night I needed something to read . I feel in love with the characters and found myself routing for them to the end . I may not be changing from my usual, but it was a welcomed surprise .
