Girl, Watching

Front Cover
Oberon, Jan 1, 2003 - Drama - 79 pages
Sibylla Kellaway's volatile marriage to unfaithful David is ending. She has flown the marital nest and taken refuge in a summer-house at Silversands, a remote coastal promontory. Sibylla's flight has bitterly divided friends and family and opened old wounds.
Anna, a young birder, is also at Silversands. Binoculars and notebook in hand, she secretly records all she sees - the nesting terns and rare waders...and the glamorous, defiant Sibylla.
Darkly comic and provocative, Girl, Watching charts a young woman's transformation - from silent observer to vocal witness - told through the language and rituals of bird-watching.
