Elodie grew up in the forest in France without speech. Snatched at the age of three by a troubled mute man‚ all she learns is bird song.
When she is found as a teenager‚ the media frenzy brings 'Little Bird' to a famous American linguist. So Elodie grows up in another country‚ with a new identity in a household sometimes more hostile than the forest she left.
When violence strikes‚ Elodie flees again‚ to London. She is determined to put the past behind her and lead a normal life. But what happens if someone from her past won't let her go? What happens if someone falls in love with her?
LITTLE BIRD is an extraordinary rich‚ wholly absorbing‚ psychological novel about identity‚ language and love
