The Hummingbird’s Cage

The cover of THE HUMMINGBIRD’S CAGE, by Tamara Dietrich, is deceiving. Lovely and innocent looking, I thought to myself, what a lovely story. This is a story of survival and strength.

When the story opens Joanna and her six-year-old daughter are living a life full of fear.  The oh-so handsome Jim, the man Joanna fell in love with and married some ten years ago, has become someone she does not even know. Jim is a policeman who just happens to be an abuser.

Finally, Joanna finds the strength to flee her town in New Mexico. She takes her daughter and runs. She is taken in by a farmer and his wife and a town that is “otherworldly” and mysterious.  But real life has a way of instigating itself into the best of plans…

Dietrich has done her homework. She’s interviewed many homeless women living in shelters with their children as they run from their abusive partners. We find these women in all walks of life, and many are people we know.

I have one copy of THE HUMMINGBIRD’S CAGE, by Tamara Dietrich, for giveaway thanks to the generous people at NAL books.

Please leave a comment below to be entered to win. I will choose one winner Friday, June 5th. Only U.S. addresses, and no P.O. boxes, please. Good luck!
