The Leader of the Swans Summary

The Leader of the Swans by Linda Lee Welch

Born and raised in Texas, Susie fled to England as a young student, and has made it her home. Bringing up her beloved daughter Claire is a struggle, but these days it's not just the practical hardships that are wearing her out. The childhood she thought she had escaped is haunting her: memories of a fearsomely bitter, spiteful mother and a father whom she adored, and who betrayed her. Susie realises that in order to free herself from the past, she must learn to understand her parents - their hopes, their secrets, and their devastating disappointments. And so she sits down to write a letter to her father. Emotionally enriching and deeply compelling, The Leader of the Swans is a tour de force: a compassionate, spirited novel from a remarkable new writer.

The Leader of the Swans Reviews

** 'I was gripped and moved by THE LEADER OF THE SWANS. The writing itself is frequently funny, sparky and on the button. A most brave and uplifting tale, told in a voice of quirky originality' Lesley Glaister, author of Now You See Me, Easy Peasy and Digging to Australia
