The year is 1972. Eleven-year-old Naomi lives on Cape Cod with her older sister, Rachel, her psychiatrist father, and her mother, who dances like the spring flowers in the wind. Naomi spends her time studying the wild birds of Cape Cod--their nesting habits, feeding habits, and their voices. She also loves to watch her mother dance. She and Rachel try to emulate their mother, which only makes her laugh. Naomi loves to hear her mother laugh. When symptoms of a life-changing disease appear in her mother, Naomi’s world begins to change. Click here for more of the curledupkids.com book review of Esther Ehrlich's Nest.
