Fly, Bird, Fly” will immediately draw readers in with its effective use of drama for characterization. And readers will stay on the page with the author all the way through, as tensions mount on all sides.

In the end, the story illustrates the dire effects of a theocratic dictatorship. Among them are family disruption and brutality. And heroism: Aunt Marie’s sacrifice brings a crucial understanding to Faith and James and their mother.

It must be noted that, while the story uses Christian terminology at only one point, the moral applies to all religions and even political parties: do not usurp the place of God. One might add that the first to do so is now known as Satan. “Fly, Bird, Fly” adds an illustrative footnote to one of Cassandra’s Voices: Karen Armstrong’s The Battle for God.
