Zenda Vecchio / The Swan's Egg

  • Zenda Vecchio / The Swan\'s Egg
'When I was a little girl, I hurt my arm and my mother took me to a different doctor, one I’d never been to before. He called me an ugly duckling. My mother laughed when he said it but I didn’t mind. Just as long as I had been hatched from a swan’s egg. Because, then, eventually, I would turn into a swan and nothing else would matter.'
This is seventeen-year-old Ruth's story of her determination to find a place for herself in a world very different from the one she had imagined as a child.
Zenda Vecchio is an award-winning South Australian author whose numerous short stories and poems have been published in a variety of literary journals and magazines. She has had two novels for adolescents published but this is her first novel for adults.
