    A Reflective Read

    I enjoyed the simplicity of Jen's lifestyle, her passion for nature and birds. Her well drawn character made me feel I knew her well. Sometimes I felt what she felt, saw the way she saw. The mystery was woven through the story log the twigs of the huge hanging nest. A reflective, satisfying read. I'd recommend it.

    An interesting book about birds and nature.

    This book is primarily about birds in a semi-tropical Australian rural setting. A middle-aged woman has returned to the area of her childhood to readjust and to become comfortable with herself again after many traumas. She is an artist who specialises in painting birds, and gives art lessons to a local boy. There is a background mystery of missing children, but the main focus of the book is birds, nature and the changing seasons. The writing is masterful in that it keeps the reader interested to the last page even though the pace is slow and ultimately peaceful. It is a 'feel good' book even there is sadness and ultimate fulfilment.

    Nests

    The Australian fascination with the bush and the lost child lives on in this beautifully crafted story about innocence, loss, love and life. Lightened by the habits and the beauty of birds, Simpson weaves a lovely tale towards closure and redemption.

    Nest

    The author has gone to great pains to beautifully describe the abundance of bird life and of the ever changing vegetation of the Australian landscape. Burnt dry one minute and drowning in torrential rain the next minute. The story revolves around one central character, Jen. Jen is trying to cope with her past, family and personal relationships and how they have impacted on her in making her a loner. Jen sees the world through an artistic eye, one that is very different than most. The story drags a little and becomes bogged down with the character blaming external experiences for her morose attitude. The mystery of the missing children becomes obvious well before the end. Mr Wigg by this author I enjoyed more.
