The author's skilled hand takes readers through a current day French Quarter New Orleans filled with quirky people, to the small town of her main character's birth along a Louisiana bayou where Birdie was partially raised by an encampment of hippies. You'll love the free spirited extended family Wiggins has created; a family that refuses to be crushed by life's harshness and injustices. Also enjoyable are the realistic descriptions of time and place; the lyrical turns of phrase; the tightly woven plot threads; and the unforgettable characters.
Root. Sprout. Blossom.: Life Bag of a Flower-Child is everything the title implies and more. Find out how Birdie Lormand manages to bloom against the odds. Reading the book may just take you on a trek backward to your own beginnings and lead to some eye-opening self-discoveries.
