I am IN LOVE with this book! I loved the writing style, the characters, the story, everything.

I felt that I was whisked away to Mallow Island and the Dellawisp condos from the very first chapter, and I did not want to leave. This is a lovely story about the residents of the Dellawisp, with a tinge of underlying mystery. There were several twists throughout, some that made my jaw drop, and some that I figured out. But figuring out the twists really didn’t detract from the story at all, it almost enhanced it as if the author was giving us a peek into what was coming. I admit I cried more than a few times reading this one. Who knew I could get so emotional over birds and cornmeal. IYKYK 😉. Other Birds had so many beautiful quotes throughout, it was truly a wonderful read.
