About this title


Imagine a forgotten game of hide and seek. Imagine the days pass and the years, and you forget you’re in hiding....

She remembered her mother saying that God knew the name of even the tiniest sparrow and watched over each and every one. And she wondered how God had lost them, how he could not see what was happening to the children in this house. They were the children who had become invisible to God. Somehow they had become hidden in the shadow of a tiny bird.

As a child, Robyn Miller had traded Jesus and his angels for Superman. The stars of Sunday school had been called upon many times, after all, and had not lived up to their reputation. By turning her back on them, she showed the angels just how disappointed she was in them for not delivering her from the terrifying circumstances that seemed to forever separate her from the rest of the world. It would be a long time before Robyn would be required to glimpse their presence once again. And that day was growing closer....

Headstrong reporter Robyn Miller has found herself in the middle of a story even she finds hard to believe. As she unravels disturbing truths and encounters the extent to which some will go to keep her quiet, she soon realizes the most chilling story she will ever uncover is her own.

In her first novel, In the Shadow of the Sparrow, award-winning journalist Gloria Hillard tells the story of a reporter who investigates her missing childhood and discovers the source of her recurring nightmares only to find herself caught up in an ancient battle between light and dark.

“As in “Silence of the Lambs,” our heroine must face her fears...Tension-filled and leaves us inspired by the hope that justice will prevail.”
-- Jennie Lew Tugend, Producer “Free Willy” and “Return To Me.”

"A wonderful writer." -- Ann Rule, New York Times Bestselling author.
