Cuckoo is the story of several women whose lives are interwoven with a common thread – the unassuming, but ever-present, Prue.
At first a little girl in the charge of her pious grandmother, the parentless Prue grows into an introverted and self-conscious adolescent.
Perpetually on the fringes of the affairs of her friends and family, she plays a bit-part as a meek nuisance until she finds an older man and is suddenly propelled into a lead role.
Anne Piper’s second novel is full of wit, subtle studies of character and an unadorned wisdom about love, requited and not, and the relationship between the sexes.
