Book of the Month - ISLA'S SONG
Melbourne, Australia, 1955. A four-year old child, Isla, is seated at a piano. She digs out her scrunched sheet music from her school bag, flattens it out and places it before her. She looks about an unfamiliar room, where windows frame the wild unforgiving landscape of the Orkney Islands, before resting her tiny fingers on the old upright keyboard.
Little did Isla or her father know of her mother ’s secret to abduct Isla from her home, her friends, family and everything that made her feel loved and secure.
Isla’s Song, set in the heady folk music days of the 60s, is a story of choices, betrayal, love, stardom, eternal hopes and a child’s love.
From one act of kidnapping, a little girl reveals to us how the gift of music and a commitment to manifest can really make dreams come true.
