Our African Grey Parrot narrator was captured in the wild and has suffered much in his life. He loves people but he directs his attention, humor and rascal comments to you, the reader.
Our beautiful heroine is only a teenager but already she knows she wants a BIG life, outside the gypsy camp into which she was born and raised. Neci is passionate about Ezra and her desire to move up.
Nuncio and Coil, the snake are drawn into the mystical beauty of Ezra's composition and into the love drama and is going on inside the recital hall.
Neci and Ezra are drawn to each other but powerful social forces and the looming war keep them at arms length.
