The unforgettable story about a family with a secret at its core, from Top Ten bestseller Lisa Jewell, author of Ralph's Party, The Making of Us and Before I Met You. When a tragedy breaks a family apart, what can bring it back together? The Birds seem to be the perfect family: mother, father, four children, a picture-book cottage in the country. But when something happens one Easter weekend, it is so unexpected, so devastating, that no one can talk about it. The family shatters, seemingly for ever. Until they are forced to return to the house they grew up in. And to confront what really took place all those years ago.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Clever, intelligent and believable on a subject few of us really understand. Lorrie is one of the most vivid - and complex - characters I've read in years. Wonderful." * Jojo Moyes *
"Simply stunning." * Daily Mail *
"Poignant, heart-wrenching & beautifully told, the author's best tale yet." * The Sun *
"Compelling... possibly the author's best yet... An intensely moving study of grief and family relationships, this is also a fantastically gripping story with a couple of powerful shocks." * Hello! *
"Beautifully written." * Heat *
