9780001024397: The Owl Service

An all-time classic, combining mystery, adventure, history and a complex set of human relationships. Read by Robert Powell

It all begins with the scratching in the ceiling. From the moment Alison discovers the dinner service in the attic, with its curious pattern of floral owls, a chain of events is set in progress that is to effect everybody’s lives.

Relentlessly, Alison, her step-brother Roger and Welsh boy Gwyn are drawn into the replay of a tragic Welsh legend – a modern drama played out against a background of ancient jealousies. As the tension mounts, it becomes apparent that only by accepting and facing the situation can it be resolved.

Review:

“…A rare imaginative feat and the taste that it leaves is haunting.”
The Observer

From the Back Cover:

Read by Robert Powell

Huw looked at Gwyn, and looked through him. "She is coming," he said. "She won't be long now."

It all begins with the scratching in the ceiling; then the eyes appear from behind the plaster. Something is stirring in the valley; something old and powerful. Alison, Gwyn and Roger can all feel it, but only Huw seems to really understand it.

As the invevitable confrontation between past and present draws nearer, Gwyn needs to find the strength to stall the disaster that hangs over them.
