Summary

A Sparrow Splashing is a journey into the heart of the Buddha’s teachings. This book of stories and poetry looks at the life of the author through the eyes of three characters: a child named Little Pebble, a young man called the Seeker, and the Teacher, a Buddhist Monk. The reader is invited to reflect and meditate upon the universal search for happiness and the nature of suffering. Along the way, desire, anger, ignorance, jealousy and pride are encountered in various forms. This book explores Buddhism, and spirituality in general, beyond sectarian dogma, pointing the way to perfect wisdom and compassion, the essential nature of all beings.

    “Shelley Shepard Gray writes with honesty, tenderness, and depth. Her characters are admirable, richly-layered and impossible to forget.”—Jillian Hart 
    One of today’s most beloved authors of inspirational Christian fiction, Shelley Shepard Gray completes her acclaimed Families of Honor series with The Survivor—a poignant and beautiful story of love and faith in a small Amish community. Delving once more into the lives of these devout and fascinating folk, as she did in her popular Sisters of the Heart and Seasons of Sugarcreek novels, Gray tells the story of a young Amish woman who has survived the ravages of cancer, but now longs for the love of the one man who can heal her lonely heart. Like Beverly Lewis, Wanda Brunstetter, and Cindy Woodsmall, Shelley Shepard Gray introduces readers to characters they will never forget as she masterfully depicts a world of simple living, abiding faith, and honest emotions.
