This is certainly a 'gem' of a novel.

I love the magic of the lyrebird. And was also disturbed by the way violence had impacted on 3 generations of women in a family. And this only discovered by the reader towards the end of the book. Secrets.

The Lyrebird is ' almost' a blank slate when she is first discovered by the outside world. Her uniqueness is exploited.

I look forward to reading more from the author and will re read Daddy Long Legs which I read when I was a kid.

Lyrebird is a gem. It takes you to a magical place through the eyes of the character Laura, or "Lyrebird" who has lived away from the world hidden in the hills until a documentary team finds her to bring her into the craziness of today. I was mesmerized by Lyrebird's story and her journey as she tries to figure out what her new life outside of the comfort of what she has always known.

Magnificent book. Beautifully written story of a gifted woman whose unusual talents aren't entirely well-accepted. I enjoyed the descriptions of what it might be like to be in a reality talent show, and the process of creating indie documentaries. There is even romance. One line I liked: "Talking to Bo is like talking to a non-absorbent sponge." (p. 231) A full package that keeps you turning the page.
