Hush, Little Bird by Nicole Trope

On July 15, 2015

By Sophia Whitfield
Nicole Trope has done it again with a fast paced intriguing read. Reminiscent of the recent Rolf Harris case, Trope delves into the psyche of the male celebrity who has it all. The effect of the celebrity image is writ large in the pages of Trope’s fourth novel.

Hush, Little Bird is told from the alternating perspectives of two female inmates, both serving time for crimes they have committed against loved ones.

Felicity, or Birdy as she likes to be called, has almost served her time at ‘The Farm’. She is desperate to return home to be with her daughter Isabel.

When Rose arrives at ‘The Farm’ there is a flurry of excitement. She is a celebrity or was married to a celebrity. Birdy recognises her immediately but initially Rose is in the dark. As the novel progresses we learn how their seemingly disparate lives have been intertwined. One damaged by her passed, the other living a life of privilege as a celebrity wife.

Gripping and tense, Hush, Little Bird will take you out of your comfort zone.
