This is the story of Lillie Bird, a woman from a locked religious community who one day finds herself in the freedom of a strange new world, England, accused of murdering a man. It was there, in that land of cold, dark skies and scuffed and tumbling streets that she had first found the pleasure and the sadness, and the love she had, for years, so desperately sought. Love Song is at once a celebration of the human spirit and a powerful story of exile, identity and love. Mesmerising and heartbreaking, this is one of Nikki Gemmell’s finest works.

Nikki Gemmell is the author of Shiver and Cleave. She works for BBC Radio and lives in London.From AudioFile:
As 22-year-old Lillie Bird reflects upon her unborn child, she writes the story of her exile to a small religious community and the events that led to her pregnancy. After a startling opening scene, listeners will want to know how the baby's father died and why Lillie is charged with his murder. Caroline Lee's reading is both realistic in its Australian accent and smooth enough to keep ears tuned in. One question about this production is its market. While this is aimed at young adults, a story told almost completely in flashback is problematic for this age group, and its graphic sexual scenes may also be inappropriate.
