What if following your heart meant destroying the one person you promised to love forever?

Matt Watts wasn't ready to be alone. An only child, then an orphan, Matt was tossed into a life that was lonely, unfair, and impossibly dark. While in that darkness, he found Leila in a bright white dress and tomato red lipstick. She was all heart, life, and warmth. She would be his savior.

Leila Watts has always lived by her heart. But now, ten years and two kids later, Leila begins to realize that her heart only gets her into trouble. Corbin Green is a wandering scholar and kindred spirit, and he reaches Leila in ways Matt never could. But as Leila and Corbin's innocent new friendship quickly turns into an intense and irreplaceable bond, Leila is haunted by all of the hearts she's responsible for-all the years, the tragedies, the children, the friendships, the mistakes, and the promises. How does a woman find the strength it takes to live an honest life when every choice she makes is full of regret?

The Fish and the Bird is a story about two people who are bound by a promise and all of the other lives caught up in their wake. For fans of intense literary fiction, not without some laughs, and realistic romance that reaches you all the way to your stupid, stupid heart.
