Songbyrd is a modern take on the mythology of Sirens. Innocence Byrd discovers a complicated family legacy after she and her mother move to dusty town in Texas to escape a haunted past.Innocence Byrd is not what she seems. Living on the road with her mother, who trades boyfriends the way other women swap out purses, all she’s ever really wanted is a normal, stable life in one place. But Stonetop, a dusty small town in Texas, is not that place.
Innocence is plagued by nightmares of a terrible event in her past, and the ever-growing fear that whatever she and her mother have been running from will finally catch up. Secrets are bubbling to the surface, hers and her mother’s. As Innocence becomes increasingly aware of her family’s mysterious and sometimes frightening powers—and as her own powers begin to surface—Innocence has to decide whom to trust.
Or, as the real question becomes, figure out if anyone can trust her. Unable to elude their haunted past, three generations of Byrd women must not only unite, but embrace their birthright as a gift—and their key to a future of love and understanding.
