When I spotted this book I was drawn to it by both the lovely book cover and the premise of the storyline. So I was really looking forward to reading this book. It was something different from my typical reading.

Ok, so this is a book where the past and present did not merge so well together. I enjoyed the past way more than the present. So it is easy to say that I found Julia and her campaign to save exotic birds way more exciting than her granddaughter, Kelly's voice. So after a while I found myself quickly skipping over the present to get back to the past. I would have been fine staying in the past. However as much as I liked the past, I found I was not as over the top thrilled with this time period as I have been drawn reading other time periods.

So this brings me to the other reason why I gave this book such a low rating. It is because I found most of the other characters not up to par with Julia and the story so drawn out. If the other characters had been more lively and the story just as lively than this would have been another story and I would have given this book a higher rating. ( )
