Picaflor: Finding Home in South America

Jessica Helen Talbot, Fern Petrie

‘Picaflor, that’s what they call a hummingbird here: a snacker, nibbler, pecker of flowers. Is that what I am? A restless searcher of sweet nectar?’ In Picaflor, a true story, Jessica Talbot invites the reader to travel beside her as she searches for love and meaning, while traversing the fascinating countries of South America. Along the way she lets go of grief, grasps hold of the present and finds herself occupying her own weather beaten shoes. When unexpected signs appear on her path she asks, ‘Is this serendipity or fate?’ As the journey unfolds she realises that you don’t need to know, it can be magical either way. The story starts with Jessica getting a tattoo of a hummingbird, a reminder of new beginnings. Then a kiss at sunrise in the snow-dusted Andes of Peru sends her on a restless, risky journey that ends in Argentina. As she travels through unknown terrain, new friends give her important insights into the meaning of friendship, and old ties strengthen as she frees herself from the past. It’s in the exhilarating but complicated city of Buenos Aires that she finally understands what it means to feel ‘home’. ABOUT THE AUTHOR Jessica Talbot grew up in New Zealand.
