"Call of the Song Sparrow," Carmen Brady

Call of the Song Sparrow grew from an awareness of family and from my desire to understand the intricacies of familial ties.  I have held a long-standing interest in exploring the inter-relational dynamics within the family unit, particularly between parents, children and siblings.  The main impetus behind creating the storyline that carries this novella has stemmed from my realization that part of what people need in life is the ability to process their own individual journeys, to tell their stories and to have their stories heard.

As this family drama unfolds, I emphasize the importance of honesty and forgiveness amongst family members while also focusing on the power of reconciliation, unconditional love and the need for courage even in the midst of debilitating fears.
