AbstractHistoryArchive Description

"'Are you lonely here?' her mother asked.

"'Never,' Alice said. ‘Not while I am friends with the lyrebird.'

"Alice has spent her life living on the outskirts of a small town. Every other morning, she is visited by a lyrebird. Her bond with this magnificent bird draws her to her nearest neighbour, Mr Brown, a widower who loves the bush and its treasures as much as she does.

"But change is coming: Alice is growing up, and having to think about her future. Mr Brown is getting older, and less able to look after himself. And as the nearby town grows, their beloved lyrebird and bushland are threatened too."
