Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"The quintessential bird lady . . . Johns's writing is gentle and flowing, and the descriptions of the animals she tends to are wonderfully vivid. Her astute observations lead her to offer up some interesting bits of information . . . The care with which she attends to the injured birds that arrive on her doorstep is astounding . . . What marvellous luck for us that Johns writes so beautifully, so we can share a slice of that life." — Globe and Mail
