ABBEY'S BOOKSELLER PICK ----- Beth belongs to a colourful and eccentric family, but as a quiet, self-effacing and practical person, she never feels quite like she fits in. The person she is closest to is her grandmother Elise, a renowned botanist who understands Beth's need for structure and accountability. When Beth, in a fit of uncharacteristic rebellion, buys a lottery ticket, she is trying to prove she is capable of spontaneity. When the ticket actually wins a substantial amount, Beth decides to embrace a bit more of fate's unpredictability, and takes her grandmother to London in order to reconnect with her long lost love – Gerry, short for Geraldine. Fate has more plans in store for Beth, beyond the surprise of Elise's past… A nicely cosy read, undemanding but satisfying and a lot of fun. Lindy

Beth doesn't feel like she belongs in her rambunctious, bohemian family. Apart from the special relationship she shares with her grandma, Elise. When Beth wins the lottery (on a ticket she bought to prove she could be spontaneous), she decides to spend it on treating Elise.

But instead of anything material, Elise wants Beth to help her track down her first love, Gerry. It's a fun and uncomplicated little adventure, Beth thinks, until she discovers that her grandma's great love is actually a woman, and their romance was thwarted by the conservatism of the day. Grappling with her grandma's past spurs Beth to reconsider herself in the present.

Birds of a Feather is a funny, poignant and utterly charming debut novel about questioning who you are and what you might become.

Rhianna King has spent more than two decades working as a communicator for state government environmental agencies and an Aboriginal-led not-for-profit organisation. During Melbourne's long lockdowns of 2020-21, Rhianna craved the company of people other than those in her locked-down household and so created characters to spend time with instead. The result: her first novel, Birds of a Feather. Rhianna lives in Melbourne with her husband and two children.
