Nearly fifty years have passed since Elizabeth last saw the colonial house in Nelson, New Zealand, where she once boarded as a young teacher in 1962. Elizabeth remembers the house and the peace she felt there when she heard the call of the bellbird. Now widowed and 70 years old, Elizabeth returns to Nelson when she hears that the house, which had been in the family since 1860, is up for sale. As she is shown around it, she recalls what it had been like when her great-aunts and great-uncle lived there. Elizabeth hears the bellbird sing and is comforted once again, as the bird’s song always represented hope and continuity.
When she is told by the agent that the living room is locked because the owners are using it for storage, she feels faint. And as she sits outside on the verandah, she remembers exactly why the mysterious door is locked. Where the Bellbird Sings is a lovingly crafted story that deftly weaves the past into the present, all to the tune of the bellbird.

About the Author: Born in Salisbury, England, Elaine Blick moved to New Zealand after World War II. She is a retired teacher and now divides her time between both countries. Although her book is fiction, it is based on her teaching experiences. “When I heard that our old home in Nelson, which had been in the family since 1842 was going to be sold, I felt compelled to preserve its memory by writing a story set there.” She is now writing her next book.
