Publisher's Summary

Life is in two parts: who you were before you met her and who you are after.
A documentary crew discover a mysterious young woman living alone in the mountains of West Cork. Strikingly beautiful, she has an extraordinary talent for mimicry, like the famous Australian lyrebird.
The crew, fascinated, make her the subject of their story and bestow the nickname upon her. When they leave they take Lyrebird with them back to the city. But as she leaves behind her peaceful life to learn about a new world, is she also leaving behind a part of herself?
For her new friend, Solomon, the answer isn't clear. When you find a rare and precious thing, should you share it - or protect it?
An intriguing and remarkable love story, Lyrebird will cement Cecelia Ahern's reputation as a writer of extraordinary talent.

I have loved Ahern's books in the past so I thought I would give this book a go. The narrator was great at bringing the characters to life and I felt like I was there with Laura as she met and went through a whirlwind. I will recommend it to fans of Ahern.

I don't believe this is an Ahern.

Poorly written. I can't believe it's a Cecelia Ahern novel. I've read all of her novels and have never been disappointed until now. The characters were poorly written, inconsistent and unlikable. The storyline was flawed and littered with plot holes.

You wish it was true
