"Gloriously heartbreaking and tragic, but beautiful, THE SONGBIRD WITH SAPPHIRE EYES is a nod to the roaring twenties you don't want to miss."

Forever a Lady

lives take them on journeys we can all enjoy and perhaps learn something meaningful from.

A wife, mother and doting "nany"  of two– this former city girl and her country husband live on 45 wooded acres in one of Oregon’s enchanted forests. Their log home contains an interesting collection of Flapper and Prohibition memorabilia inspired by her first novel and an animal menagerie that includes two wolf-hybrids, a red-tailed hawk named Lucky and a feisty but lovable African grey parrot named Warlock.

"It's like you are right there in the roaring twenties!

Author Anna Brentwood has created a true "gem" with her story of young songstress Hannah in this recent "roaring twenties" novel. The heroine is exceptionally well-developed as her intriguing rural to urban journey unfolds. I felt like I was literally and figuratively seeing her life change from "black and white" to "color" right before my eyes. Hats off to Ms. Brentwood for an obviously well-researched period piece, which even includes masterful use of dialects reminiscent of William Faulkner. If you like the Twenties, organized crime, or the art-deco period, this book is for you. Please. Ms. Brentwood, write us a sequel!!!!"
