Flamingo by Rachel Elliott

Flamingo by Rachel Elliott


A novel of love, homelessness, and learning to be fearlessIn the garden, there were three flamingos. Not real flamingos, but real emblems, real gateways to a time when life was impossibly good. They were mascots, symbols of hope.

Something for a boy to confide in. First, there were the flamingos. And then there were two families.

Sherry and Leslie and their daughters, Rae and Pauline - and Eve and her son Daniel. Sherry loves her husband, Leslie. She also loves Eve.

It couldn't have been a happier summer. But then Eve left and everything went grey. Now Daniel is all grown-up and broken.

And when he turns up at Sherry's door, it's almost as if they've all come home again. But there's still one missing. Where is Eve? And what, exactly, is her story? FLAMINGO is a novel about the power of love, welcome and acceptance.

It's a celebration of kindness, of tenderness. Set in 2018 and the 80s, it's a song for the broken-hearted and the big-hearted, and is, ultimately, a novel grown from gratitude, and a book full of wild hope.
