Beware the Laughing Blackbirds
The village of Satama on Broom Island was founded by Finns escaping tsarist rule in the early l900s. The name, Satama, means harbor or haven. But Satama proved to be anything but. What really happened to the Lemerriant family in the fire of 1927? Who is killing the residents of Broom Island? Is it really a rogue cougar? Why do the children chant, "Beware the laughing blackbirds and the Loogy-Roo...If they don’t stop laughing, then they’ve come for you." A sleepy community with a dark past awakened by the arrival of young 10 year old Gabrielle Choate.
