Little Bird has landed in America, far from her home in Scotland and far from the danger that stalked her family. But the new world holds new perils, and soon she's on the run again. From the teeming streets of New York to the prairies of the west, Little Bird holds tight to secrets and dreams of freedom.
Then, on her journey, she comes face-to-face with an unwelcome ghost from the past...
The brilliant sequel to Little Bird Flies, this is an exciting story of settling in the New World while still being haunted by everything you've left behind. Themes of emigration and immigration, race and social status are thought-provokingly explored by the brilliant Karen McCombie.
A modern Little House on the Prairie!
