  • ""The Anatomy of Wings is a touching and funny novel by a fast-emerging Australian author who is catching the eye of literary judges around the country.

As she recounts the final months of Beths life, Jennifer sifts through the lies and the truth, but what she finds are mysteries, miracles and more questions. Was Beths death an accident?
