I AM LUCKY BIRD by Fleur Phillips

Baby found behind local bar. Adopted by hard living Mariam Bird and her daughter, Emma Marie

Lucky has to defend herself from her adoptive mother's abuse.  This book is difficult to read because of the child abuse. Lucky endures this abuse during her formative, tender years. This book covers some child abuse. Child abuse is never right under any circumstances.  Everything happens for a reason, but that reason can be hard to find.

Lucky defies everything and leaves the horrors of her past only to confront more turmoil.  Out of the skillet and into the frying pan, so they say.
I feel a lot of her problems were brought on by bad choices of her own.

Just when she feels it's time to call it quits, Prince Charming appears.  A new journey begins.  Was Lucky finally getting her pot of gold?
The book will definitely pull at your heart strings.  It's worth reading even through the sadness.  Well written.  The characters and situations are described fairly well.  I feel the story flows well and you don't want to put the book down.  It just holds on to you.

The book was full of realistic people.  You could take them out of their book setting and their world and they would fit right in the real world.  It's often said that if trouble can find you, it surely will.  Well it did as far as Lucky was concerned.  Was Lucky destined for trouble in her future?
You want so much to see that Lucky is finally happy, but it seems like her life is one of tragedy and will remain that way.

Strong story but heartfelt writing.  You want to keep turning those pages.  I can't wait for Fleur Phillips' next book.  Whatever it is, it will be a good read just like this one.

Pick up the book and READ! 4 STARS

I received a complimentary e-book copy of 'I Am Lucky Bird' from Net Galley on behalf of New Dawn Publishers for this review.
