*** All the Birds, Singing by Evie Wyld


The heroine of All the Birds, Singing is a middle-aged woman raising sheep on an unnamed island in the North of England. The story of her mysteriously-killed sheep unfolds in a skillful double strand, one forward and the other backwards, with flashbacks into her mysterious past in Australia, working as a sheep shearer with a disturbing past. Brilliantly done!

I would have liked a more definite ending, but the suspense of the past was most successful.
