A Nest of Sparrows by Deborah Raney

Raney's specialty seems to be tenderhearted stories. A Nest of Sparrows was her attempt at a dramatic one. The only problem is that adoption and custody stories have no good ending but the predictable ones.
The story is about a woman with three young kids who divorced her abusive husband two years earlier. She is engaged to a local man, and they are planning to get married in a few months. The only problem is she dies, forcing her fiancee to take in her kids and care for them. Then the abusive husband shows up and starts a custody battle. You can see where that leads. The only consolation is a slightly unexpected ending.
The characters are developed well enough for a tenderhearted story. There's nothing wrong with it, especially if you like custody (not really that thrilling) thrillers.
2.5 stars
