Abstract:

Just one-year-old, snatched from her pushchair by a troubled man who was mute. She grew up in the forest in France, without speech. All she learnt was bird song. She was a teenager when she was found ... The media frenzy brings her to an American psychiatrist, challenged to teach her to speak - another country, environment and identity for Elodie in which to grow up. But Elodie flees from being a guinea pig when violence flares. Alone in a city she doesn't understand, she leaves, assuming a third identity in London as Kate. Seeking a life without relationships or obligations, she slips through the cracks in society. But what happens if she learns to love someone? What if someone from her past won't let her go?
