Dawn doesn’t need complications in her life. She’s busy brooding day after day over her flamed-out opera singing career, spending hours each day streaming her last, humiliating performance. It wasn’t what she expected for herself, but she’s on hiatus now while her voice heals, and at least now she and her husband of five years, Ash, have time to start the family they’ve always wanted. So the last thing she needs is her brother-in-law, Tariq, whom she barely knows, moving in with them. Nor does she want to tutor a bunch of quirky, amateur whistlers in need of a coach.

Tariq, who didn’t even attend their wedding, nor did he stay long at Ash and Tariq’s father’s funeral, shows up the very next day, with African Grey Parrot, Tulip, in tow. And Dawn, who storms down to her agent’s office after meeting with the whistling group, finds out that her contract with the opera company requires her to work or she doesn’t get paid. So, Dawn trudges back to meet with the amateur siffleurs (whistlers), angry and short-tempered in her dealings with them. And, she gets roped into taking Tariq to his chemotherapy appointments, as her husband can’t cancel his twice daily stops at his aging mother’s house, both breakfast and dinner, for a visit.
hat Tariq wished, without ever actually voicing his preference.

The novel is one of pain and loss, struggle and redemption, and finding that new path in life, as the one we thought we were on doesn’t always lead us where we thought.

Really 4.5 stars.
I received an advance copy from ECW, thank you.

This book is delightful, quirky, heartwarming, poignant, funny and sad all at once. The book covers friendship, ambition, and acceptance.
Dawn is a opera singer, who had a disastrous performance hurting her voice and her pride. She has sequestered herself at home with her husband Ash, who's a workaholic, so basically she's alone and in a rut. During her recuperation, her contract calls for her to teach a class at a local college. Reluctantly she agrees to this, and at the same time Ash tells her that his brother, Tariq, will be staying with them. Tariq is sick with cancer and Ash has offered that he stay with them. Tariq has a parrot that goes everywhere with him. When Dawn walks into the class she's going to teach, she finds a group calling themselves the Warblers. The Warblers are a group of mismatched characters, bonded by the love of whistling. Tariq and his parrot Tulip join the class, and what ensues is a heartwarming story of friendship, bonding, acceptance, and memories. ( )
