Homeless Bird is an amazing story by Gloria Whelan. This story talks about a thirteen year old girl called Koly who married a boy called Hari. Koly was told that Hari is 19, but on the wedding day Koly finds out that Hari is younger than she is and that his parents tricked her into marrying him just to take her money. The money was used to get a doctor to try curing Hari's sickness, but the doctor sadly said there is no cure. Sass, the mother in-law, told the doctor that she is taking her son to the Veranasi where there is a lake; well as Indians believe that lake would cure anything. The doctor said it was a bad idea because it's a long journey, but no one could change Sass's mind. The next day the family took Hari and went to the lake. Koly compared herself to a homeless bird when she read a poem in the book of Sassur, which is Koly's father in-law. But after the events she was a homeless bird flying back home.
