Other Birds

Off the coast of South Carolina is a small charming island called Mallow Island. It’s history as sweet as the marshmallows it once produced. Eighteen year old Zoey arrives at the Dellawisp condo complex with her invisible bird Pigeon to claim her inheritance. This apartment is all she has left of her mother besides a few very early, blurry memories. She is quickly introduced to an eclectic group of tenants. Twenty six year old Charlotte, a surprisingly reclusive henna artist finds a way into her heart. Mac, an award winning local chef with his own haunting past befriends them both as he provides meaningful comfort food. Her neighbor Lizbeth, a mean spirited hoarder dies unexpectedly leaving Zoey with the tedious job of cleaning the apartment and the happenstance of meeting her very handsome son who hasn’t been home for years. Then there is Frasier, the older man who runs the complex and truly cares for them all, including the mysterious exotic birds that control the court yard. Feeling alone since her father remarried, Zoey is determined to use this special summer before college to create a new life for herself. As ghosts of the past embody the natural elements around them, these new friends are guided towards the mystery that has kept the Dellawisp alive. Other Birds is a delightful literary mystery filled with magical realism and moments of pure love and friendship. These are ghosts to be embraced. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
