Meet the Bird Family
So far, all four children have had an idyllic childhood: a cottage in a country village with a warm cosy kitchen filled with love and laughter, and sun-drenched afternoons in its rambling garden.
But a tragedy lies in store for the Birds: a tragedy that strikes one Easter weekend, and which is so devastating that, almost imperceptibly, it begins to tear the family apart.
The years pass, the children become adults, make new relationships, 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.
