Synopsis: Join Shona on a journey of a lifetime – the journey home! Shona, a parakeet with everything going for her, decides one fine day to leave her cozy cage to fly free in the blue skies. During her many adventures, she is befriended by a host of memorable characters including Shona 2, a parakeet who looks like her, talks like her (often even poses as her) but spouts strange, unfamiliar ideas and incites Shona to do foolhardy things. This delightful parable is about friendship, learning to trust, letting go, and discovering the power of surrender. Shona’s story will enthral and charm you, and may even touch closer home than you imagine it could be your story! Endearing and beautifully written, Free Fall will make you reflect on life, death, love, hurt, trust and the cages that imprison you: your comfort zones. Peppered with heart-warming insights and wisdom, Free Fall is sure to remain with you long after you have turned the last page.
