Publisher's Summary

Birdy thought she would have to wait until she was free again to see Rose, but now Rose has been convicted of a shocking crime and she and Birdy will be together. Birdy has been saving all her anger for Rose. It is Rose who should have protected her and kept her safe.

Birdy was little but Rose was big and she knows Rose could have saved her. This is a story about monsters who hide in plain sight and about the secrets we keep from ourselves. It is about children who are betrayed and adults who fail them. This is the story of Birdy who was hurt and Rose who must be made to pay.

A provocative and compassionate listen from the queen of white-knuckle suspense and searing family drama.

Favourite Nicole Trope book

Hush, Little Bird is my favourite by far - so beautifully written. Again I laughed and wept. Rarely do I find a book that I am completely swept up in

What a great book!

I don't know where to start writing a review for this book. It was just that good. From the very beginning, I was drawn in by little Felicity. She is such an incredible character with such depth that I felt like I could reach out and touch her little face. In fact, every single character author Nicole Trope has created has such depth and incredible realism. I was just mesmerized by how smart Felicity is despite being both a young child but also a child with a 'mental disability'. And I just loved the story. It's so very different from any other book I've read. The anticipation of finding out what really happened and how it's going to end starts immediately and never lets up.

Then there is the narrator. Susan Stafford did a superb job! She is able to read the authors words right off the page and plant them directly into your imagination. Susan deftly separates each character into bigger than life, realistic individuals. I loved the way she 'read' Felicity. This is a great book on it's own. But it's an even greater
audio book.

Powerful Story of after effects of child sexual ab

I found this a extremely interesting book covering the difficult topic of child sexual abuse. It also has as one of it's main characters a women with unspecified learning difficulties.

Albeit the subject was quite harrowing it was sensitively dealt with. It made some interesting observations about how women are groomed and how the pediophile will spread their action in a way that many do not realise is long lasting.

It was multi layered and enjoyable if you can use this term to cover this particular subject matter.

I found the narration excellent also and her range of characters she covered really good.
