Mock Up Cover-Nightingale's Stone

The Nightingale's Stone

Ada Ludenow recounts the summer of her 27th birthday to a supernatural being who may or may not eat her.

Visit the Nightingale's Stone page at the Hagengard blog on where and how to buy.


Small Events: In this companion work to The Nightingale’s Stone, Ada Ludenow explores the power of relationships to make and unmake us, with language itself as a fundamental binding force that we use or misuse for gain or at our own peril. What emerges is one woman’s portrait of the world as an ambivalent, often hostile place made livable by our ability to perceive the small events of beauty that overcome us in unexpected ways.
