The follow-up to the ABIA award-winning, international bestselling sensation Penguin Bloom.
The heart-warming and miraculous Australian story of a baby magpie that helped save a young mother and her family, Penguin Bloom first introduced the Bloom family in a book that has captured hearts and minds the world over, where, pulling no punches, Sam Bloom wrote about what it is really like to face life in a wheelchair.
In Sam Bloom: Heartache & Birdsong, Sam tells her own story for the first time – how a shy but determined Australian girl became a nurse and travelled across Africa. How she fell in love with a like-minded free spirit, raised three boys and built a life together on Sydney’s Northern Beaches. And then, in a single horrific moment, how everything changed. Sam’s journey back from the edge of death and the depths of despair is so much more than an account of overcoming adversity.
Sam’s captivating true story – written by close friend and New York Times bestselling author Bradley Trevor Greive, is humbling, heartbreaking and uplifting in equal measure. A triumph of raw emotion and devastating beauty, Sam Bloom: Heartache & Birdsong is a truly unforgettable story.
