Jake Whyte is living on her own in an old farmhouse on a craggy British island, a place of ceaseless rains and battering winds. Her disobedient collie, Dog, and a flock of sheep are her sole companions, which is how she wanted it to be. But every few nights something--or someone--picks off one of the sheep and sounds a new deep pulse of terror. There are foxes in the woods, a strange boy and a strange man, rumors of an obscure, formidable beast. And there is also Jake's past--hidden thousands of miles away and years ago, held in the silences about her family and the scars that stripe her back--a past that threatens to break into the present. With exceptional artistry and empathy, All the Birds, Singing reveals an isolated life in all its struggles and stubborn hopes, unexpected beauty, and hard-won redemption.

Like "All the Light We Cannot See", the story starts at opposite ends and the chapters try to weave together but the effect (perhaps due to the reader) is confusing and leads to an unsatisfactory ending.

This book has a current story that moves forward and a past story that moves further and further back as you read. It is at times quite suspenseful and at other times a bit humerous. I was quite intrigued by this book and the author's style which I liked. The narration was also quite good. Warning to those who like to avoid a lot of foul language. This book is loaded with swearing but it fits the character well and serves the storyline.
