In The Chance Of A Sparrow, Gracie Evans wants to leave town life for awhile to spend some time on her farm. She’s making herself sick just thinking about missing spring in the country. Her wish comes true. The man who rents her farm asks her to farm set while he takes his wife and daughter to visit his mother-in-law. Everything that could go wrong on the farm does.
A missing neighbor’s clothes are found on Gracie’s pond dam. Her land borders the missing neighbor who has been feuding with another farmer. She’s walking in the timber when someone shoots at her. A cow takes a dislike to Gracie after she calves. Gracie gets locked in the outhouse for hours. An old boyfriend keeps showing up to help her out and stays for supper as his payment. Gracie is uncomfortable with striking up a friendship with him again. All that and I’ve just touched the tip of Gracie’s problems at Tree Oaks farm. Things get so bad Gracie is vowing to be careful what she wishes for from now on if she’s going to be unlucky enough to get her wish.
