Meet the Bird Family
All four children have an idyllic childhood: a picture-book cottage in a country village, a warm, cosy kitchen filled with love and laughter, sun-drenched afternoons in a rambling garden.
But one Easter weekend a tragedy strikes the Bird family that is so devastating that, almost imperceptibly, it begins to tear them apart.
The years pass and the children become adults and begin to develop their own quite separate lives. Soon it's almost as though they've never been a family at all.
Almost. But not quite.
Because something has happened that will call them home, back to the house they grew up in - and to what really happened that Easter weekend all those years ago.

This is 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. Picture a picture-book cottage in a village. A family in a sun-drenched kitchen filled with love and laughter. Picture an Easter weekend when tragedy strikes - so unexpected, so devastating that no one can talk about it. The years pass; the children become adults. Gradually they lose touch as the secret between them tears them apart. And then something happens that calls them back to the house they grew up in - and to what really happened that Easter weekend all those years ago.Review:
