When I saw that Audrey Niffenegger, author of The Time Traveller's Wife, had released a new book - this wasn't quite what I was expecting. I had blindly ordered a copy based purely on my love of her previous work and when this landed on my doorstep I wasn't sure what to expect. I certainly wasn't expecting to fall in love.
Raven Girl tells the story of a postman who falls in love with a raven. The unlikely couple fall in love and conceive a child - a woman trapped in the body of a raven. It is a story of change, of the raven girl never quite being happy as a girl or as a raven. The story is told through images and words as you get swept away with Niffenegger's story telling. The images are beautiful and tell a story just as strong, if not stronger than her words.
