Book DescriptionHave dreams. Must travel. The magnetic words that her lover Joey sticks to a refrigerator door propel Maddie into a journey to recapture her independence and finally free herself from the abusive fanaticism of her past. Profound friendships vie with skewed love and loss to fuel Maddie's search for redemption in this powerfully-written debut novel. From Vancouver in the 1960s to present day Mexico, and a small island off the Pacific west coast, Nine Birds Singing takes the reader on a compelling odyssey of self-discovery.
Words: their veiled truths, their unexpected revelations, their sly power. The role of words in the lives of the characters in Nine Birds Singing is the thread that connects and carried them to their ultimate destiny: ruination, renewal, and finally acceptance.
Maddie is a writer of local history who wants to use her words to unlock the hidden truths that lay just below the surface of her life. But it's magnetic words on a refrigerator door - Have dreams. Must travel - that push Maddie into the journey she must take: the search for what she has yearned for all her life: independence and freedom from the abusive fanaticism of her parents' religious beliefs. The novel weaves through past glories and youthful hubris in a search for understanding and acceptance.
Joey uses words both to define himself and redefine himself, but his words do not always encompass the whole truth.
Thea collects words. She doesn't ever want to be caught without words and she rarely is. The secret that Thea carries to her ultimate end, leads Maddie finally to her own place of acceptance
Carmelita's words are spare and carefully chosen. She becomes the container for all the stories, the witness, the listener, until she allows words to finally open her heart again.
