Sandra Leigh Price’s magical novel THE BIRD’S CHILD, described by the Sydney Morning Herald as 'a debut to watch', is published today by HarperCollins Australia.

THE BIRD’S CHILD, set in Sydney in 1929, follows Ari, Lily and Billy as their stories unfold at Miss Du Maurier’s bohemian boarding house. It is a beautiful love story and a compelling mystery of belonging, an enchanting read.

Sandra Leigh Price lives in Sydney. She graduated from the Australian National University, Canberra, with a Double Major in English Literature and Drama, and co-established a small theatre company before moving to Sydney to pursue a career as an actor, then turning to writing. Wet Ink magazine published an early chapter of THE BIRD’S CHILD.

Australian booksellers have responded imaginatively to the novel's themes. Here's the display from Better Read Books.

Praise for THE BIRD’S CHILD:

‘A shimmering dream of haunted pasts. A silver girl. Abandoned boys. All the magic of the stage. THE BIRD’S CHILD is a delight.’ – Essie Fox, author of THE GODDESS AND THE THIEF
