Notes:
On the edge on Ireland's west coast, rugged mountains meet wild sea and bright blue lakes. Deep in the forest, surrounded by farmland, a girl lives alone in a small stone cottage. Then, into her peaceful landscape comes a documentary crew. Solomon's skill is sound. He records, he listens, he hears. And when he meets the girl - Laura - he discovers that she has an extraordinary talent: an ability to mimic sounds. It's a gift that earns her the nickname Lyrebird. A gift like nothing he's ever experienced. From that point, Laura's life is turned on its head. When the documentary crew offers her a way forward, a bridge to another kind of life, she takes it. But while Solomon knows the world will love Laura, will it free her to spread her wings - or will it trap her in a gilded cage? Like all wild birds, she needs to fly free.

What was CA trying to achieve with this, I'm sure I don't know. Did she go to Australia see or hear a Lyrebird and want to create a story around it, either way at best it should have been a fairy/fantasy short story. The beginning and the end were OK but the middle about the reality TV show was dire and the whole thing just badly written, if I had to read "long lean legs" one more time! The people were awful too I couldn't summon up a liking for any of them. Tripe, I only finished it as it was a round the pool holiday read. With apologies to CA fans a poor 4
