LoveReading View on Singing Bird

It is not often I read a book in a day but I did this one for it was fast and light and I badly needed to know how it resolved.  A phone call out of the blue sends Lena and her best friend off to trace the birth parents of her adopted daughter.  I am not telling you any more except that it is a wonderful way to spend a wet afternoon.

Singing Bird Synopsis

Twenty-seven years after she adopted her baby in Ireland, Lena Molloy receives a call from the nun who set up the adoption. Sister Monica claims that she wants merely to tie up loose ends in her old age, but Lena becomes frightened that something more threatening lies behind the call, and she sets off on a journey to Ireland, with her best friend, to find her daughter's birth parents - little knowing the extraordinary truths which she will uncover.
