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.
