The Birdwatcher

William McInnes

5 Reviews

Rated 0

Australia, Fiction, Modern & contemporary fiction (post c 1945), Adult & contemporary romance

A novel about love, about twitchers, and about learning to trust from bestselling, award-winning author, William McInnes - includes bonus material from HOLIDAYS, his new book.

This is a story about a bloke who's losing his hearing; a bird that can't fly but likes being read to; and a teenage daughter who doesn't know who to be angry at.

It's about a woman living with the echo of illness finding out how much fun it can be to trust someone; a man called Murph who has a secret; and Perry Como.

It's part love story, part Hot Diggity moments of discovery, whether they happen in a rainforest or while sitting on a verandah, or in somebody's heart.

It's about cold outdoor showers and people not quite being complete. But, most of all, it's about giving yourself the gift to be still while you wait for the lights to change or the rain to stop, so you have time to think.

For all of us, there are memories and secrets that can change our lives. If we let them.
