Should explain my comment: By “I think some readers may like it”. I was referring to some readers of the COG email list (not some readers of the book), which is why I bothered to send the message. Hopefully more than some readers of the book would like it.

Yes that is the one. I was not aware of the book before. I have requested a loan from the ACT library. I am 3rd in the queue.

If you're referring to The Birdman's Wife, by Melissa Ashley, it is a beautifully written book, and very informative as well. I loved it (read it a bit over a year ago). I saw it in Big W a few weeks ago, too, where it would be cheaper.

I wandered into the bookshop in Manuka today and found a book called “A birdman’s wife”. It is a biography about Elizabeth Gould. I think some readers may like it.
