Migrations: A Novel | Charlotte McConaghy
For readers of Station Eleven and Everything I Never Told You, a debut novel set on the brink of catastrophe, as a young woman chases the worlds last birdsand her own final chance for redemption. A will is a powerful thing, and mine has been called terrible. Franny Stone has always been a wanderer. By following the oceans tides and the birds that soar above, she can forget the losses that have haunted her life. But when the wild she so loves begins to disappear, Franny can no longer wander without a destination. She arrives in remote Greenland with one purpose: to find the worlds last flock of Arctic terns and follow them on their final migration. She convinces Ennis Malone, captain of the Saghani, to take her onboard, winning over his salty, eccentric crew with promises that the birds she is tracking will lead them to fish. As the Saghani fights its way south, Frannys new shipmates begin to realize that the beguiling scientist in their midst is not who she seems. Battered by night terrors, accumulating a pile of unsent letters to her husband, and dead set on following the terns at any cost, Franny is full of dark secrets. When the story of her past begins to unspool, Ennis and his crew must ask themselves what Franny is really running towardand running from. Propelled by an unreliable narrator as fierce and fragile as the terns she is following, Migrations is a shatteringly beautiful ode to the wild places and creatures now threatened. But at its heart, it is about the lengths we will go, to the very edges of the world, for the people we love.

After reading a series of books that left me uninspired, I finally picked this up & could not put it down. The sea, Ireland, and the main character continues to hover in my mind days after reading it. This is a haunting novel of a quest to track the last migration of the Arctic tern, of a woman who cannot stay in one place despite her desire for love and connection, a woman who carries on despite so much grief, and those who stand alongside her. ⬇

Suet624 It's funny that I mention Ireland, because much of this takes place in the ocean but I love her descriptions of Ireland and could imagine the places she spoke of. So many thanks to @BarbaraBB for the gift of this story. 1w

Mehso-so

Definitely an ambitious novel. I appreciated the depth of character development and multiple timelines. Timely messaging re: save the planet, but it isn‘t subtle and in that respect was a bit tedious. (Also some unrealistic scenes were distracting and took me out of the novel.)

I‘m a tough customer; maybe it‘s the genre. This is out of my wheelhouse.

This book broke my heart. A world where 80% of the animals are extinct. A future that‘s not far off. I fell in love with the landscapes, the people and the animals in this book. I‘ve always had a love of birds and that love is growing as I‘m getting older. They are an important and beautiful part of my back yard, my warm and fuzzy safe space. Im looking forward to reading ‘Once there were wolves‘.

This is a beautiful and heart wrenching story set in a not too distant future where human have destroyed the world and most animals are extinct. Franny is following the last group of arctic terns on their migration. The flashbacks of Franny‘s dark past makes this read a little like a mystery/adventure and keeps you wondering what happened to being her to this point. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

In the near future, 80% of wildlife has gone from our planet. Franny has always been a wanderer. She doesn‘t know how to be both dependable and free. Her truth is a wound she cannot speak, but she has found her life purpose: to follow the migration of the few remaining Arctic terns from Greenland to the Southern Hemisphere. A moving novel set mostly on the Atlantic Ocean and in Ireland, with storylines that flip back & forth in time. #OzFiction

I‘ve been out on my own for six days. My tent was blown into the sea last night, as wind and rain lashed it from around my body. I‘ve been pecked on the skull and hands more than a dozen times by birds who have been named the most protective in the sky. But I have three banded Arctic terns to show for my efforts. And veins filled with salt.

The book is set in a future where much has been lost to environmental damage and climate change. Franny Lynch is on a desperate quest to follow some of the last remaining birds on what is likely their final migration. But she is also trying to outrun memories that will not be silenced. Franny is an enigmatic character - baffling, persistent, reckless, and broken - yet you want see her pull through. A very intriguing, captivating novel.

The story follows Franny as she hitches a ride on a fishing boat in an effort to track terns in a future world where most of nature has been destroyed by climate change. How she came to be here is revealed through multiple time lines. Glorious. Highly recommend.

It‘s been a while since I have read something so raw, so intense that it breaks you into two people. One who drifts away to wander, crawl, swim and sway beside Franny Stone, and the other who stays put in present life wondering how long do I have before the birdsong is heard no more. 🪶🌊

The environment has been irreparably harmed and mass extinction is underway with more and more species vanishing. Franny Stone, as damaged as the world in which she lives, is on a mission to observe the last migration of Arctic Terns. The journey and Franny's past are told in flashes, moving back and forth in time. McConaghy brilliantly builds tension through a slow reveal of the past and her word-prefect descriptions of nature and people.

I squeezed this completely unplanned audiobook in to my December after absolutely loving Once There Were Wolves last month, and it did not disappoint.

McConaghy‘s writing is gorgeous and her completely believable vision of a near future where we have destroyed the natural world is chilling, but her ability to capture the turmoil and confusion of a human psyche just blows me away. This book was heartbreaking and so, so good on audio.

This will probably be among my favourites this year. A beautiful and haunting story with a strong message about the environment; a story of a woman with secrets and her search for redemption. From Greenland to the Antarctic, the details are gorgeously described, and we learn of Franny‘s past…she is such a complex character, it makes a compelling read. The grief, loss, agony,..so heartbreaking, yet it is not without hope.
