Cameron Bloom, his wife Sam and their three boys were a normal family - until a near-fatal fall left Sam paralysed and sunk into a deep depression. But in the darkest days of Sam's struggle a new and unexpected member of the family came into their lives - an injured magpie chick abandoned after she fell from her nest, who became known as Penguin Bloom. The Blooms rescued Penguin, and in return she saved them in ways they could not have imagined; through the newest and most feathery addition to the family, Sam found a new joy and strength. Penguin Bloom is a story of how compassion, friendship and support can come from unexpected quarters. This plucky little magpie reminds us all that, no matter how lost, fragile or damaged we feel, accepting the love of others and loving them in return will help to make us whole.
