Author Cheryl Grey Bostrom

Set in NW Washington State in 1985, Sugar Birds is the riveting, tender account of young Aggie, who lights a tragic fire then hides in a PNW forest, evading those who must bring her home before wilderness claims them all. A captivating story about grief, trust, and the search for forgiveness.

"Ideal for fans of The Scent Keeper, Where the Crawdads Sing, and The Great Alone, Sugar Birds is a layered, riveting story set in the breathtaking natural world - where characters encounter the mending power of forgiveness, for themselves and for those who have failed them.

Winner of multiple Earphones Awards and the prestigious Odyssey and Odyssey Honor Awards, Jayne Entwistle's narration has landed on Audiofile Magazine's list of Best Audiobooks of the Year.

"Bostrom's voice reminds me of Delia Owens's Where the Crawdads Sing and Annie Dillard's Pilgrim at Tinker Creek." Taryn R. Hutchison, award-winning author of One Degree of Freedom)

"A tour de force, with protagonist Agate as uniquely powerful as The Hunger Games's Katniss." (Dr. Lynne Curry, author and columnist, Anchorage Daily News)

"A true page-turner ... An engrossing tale." (Kirkus Reviews)."
