About this deal

A moon-white skull still warm from last night’s fire was cupped over her feet, for here the nights were clear and cool. Sofia has lived her whole life in the little charnel house made of bones, on the ground of the old monestry ruins surrounded by an olive grove. In an Italian city ravaged by plague, Sofia's mother carves beautiful mementos from the bones of loved ones. It's seen as a very niche and unique talent, but we only see the end results of some of her work and never the crafting. For such a fascinating place, filled with magpies that seem to be controlled by soldiers, I wanted to know more about why these birds were here and how they were controlled.

Their relationship is heartwarming, and Sofia (whose perspective we experience the story from) is relatable and authentic.This story is set in the same world as Candy’s book Bone Talk, which focuses on Samkad’s story in the Philippines set just prior to this one and while it’s not necessary to read Bone Talk before reading Wild Song, it does add an extra dimension to the storytelling and is certainly wonderful partner read. Przygody dwójki rodzeństwa nie pozwalają czytelnikowi się nudzić, akcja jest wartka, a jednocześnie bardzo zrozumiała, co będzie idealnym rozwiązaniem dla nieco młodszych moli książkowych. Nie czytając blurba byłam zaskoczona już w 1/3 treści, później zadawałam sobie pytanie jak to wszystko może się skończyć. Before she leaves for the town, she gifts her daughter a beautiful bone necklace, telling her that it is important and she must keep it safe.
