    Story
    "Good...until the end."
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    This book starts with a woman wanting to sell a small wooden bird which she claims was a gift from Catherine 1 of Russia to a distant ancestor. The provenance of that little bird is the backdrop for the entire story. But the story doesn't end with the woman and her bird, rather we are given James Bond. Honestly the book was OK but the ending was unsatisfactory.

    Story
    "Loved this book!"

    The Firebird, as with all Susanna Kearsley's books, is a work of art. It is beautifully written and interweaves characters from both the Shadowy Horses and Sophia's Secret (AKA The Winter Sea).

    I am not going to spoil the anticipation of the book by reviewing the storyline but for those who wept for Sophie and Anna, this is a must read for you.

    Sally Armstrong's narration was wonderful as always.

    I enjoyed this book and it is well worth your credit.
