Review

?Brilliant... An astonishing first novel, assured and gripping, and I'm convinced Roisin McAuley will become a bestseller' Bernard Cornwell; ?SINGING BIRD is really well written and fast paced, with strong characterisation... I couldn?t put it down? Rosie Boycott; ?Roisin McAuley?s accomplished debut novel...fills me with admiration, plus a healthy dose of envy. She is an expert storyteller with a natural narrative voice' Carol Smith; 'Publishers have been looking for a natural successor to Maeve Binchy and in Roisin McAuley they appear to have found her... An intense novel... destined to make her Ireland's new sensation' Belfast News Letter; 'Absorbing, entertaining and poignant' Irish Times; 'A corker of a book' Belfast Telegraph; 'Strongly recommended... Her editor's claim that Roisin McAuley's writing reminds her of Maeve Binchy, is not far from the mark' Dublin Evening Herald; 'SINGING BIRD looks set to be a huge success and Roisin McAuley a woman on the threshold of a brilliant fiction career' Belfast News; 'This part-detective, part-emotional journey is intensely absorbing' Australian Women's Weekly. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
