The Bird In The Tree



By Elizabeth Goudge

In one of her best loved novels, we hear the story of Damerosehay - the magnificent house owned for many years by the matriach of the Eliot family, Lucilla.

In this period between the world wars, she is coping with the emotional upheaval in the house caused by her much-loved nephew David falling in love with the estranged wife of a close family relative.
