As a lover of animals and the outdoors I really enjoyed The Lovebird by Natalie Brown. Its heroine, Margie Fitzgerald is an animal rights “nut” that has deep rooted sympathy for any helpless creature. Her intense sensitivity drives her to join H.E.A.R.T. Humans Encouraging Animal Rights Today at the behest of her deeply wounded Latin Professor with whom she has become involved. Through this group she becomes the organizer of a dangerous and illegal plan that gets her on the FBI’s most wanted list for domestic terrorism. Fleeing the charges she cuts off all ties to her former life and hides in the middle of nowhere on a Crow Indian reservation. It is there while learning the Native American lifestyle and belief system that she really comes into her own, finding her place in the world. I recommend this book for anyone who likes stories about animals and the outdoors, Native Americans and heartwarming love stories.
