The Freedom of Birds

ebook

Remi Victoire is the golden child among all the theatre orphans, who dreams of a life on a Paris stage. But when this future is stolen from him, Remi and his faithful friend Pascal turn their backs on Paris forever.

With Saskia, a runaway orphan girl, Remi and Pascal form a performing troupe, travelling through the fairytale lands that are the home of the Brothers Grimm, before finding a safe haven in Venice.

As Napoleon's vast Empire crumbles, the French storytellers discover that Paris itself is now at risk of invasion and they fear for the loved ones they have left behind.

From picturesque villages, to Italian theatres, to the battlefields outside of Paris, this is a beautifully told story about the bonds of love and friendship, the importance of stories and of finding a place to belong.
