About this deal

But an invitation to Rock Point, the Cornish cliff house where they once sat for their father's most celebrated painting, Girls and Birdcage, reunites them.


There are some other books I have read this year that are written it this convoluted way that are not at all entertaining, but simply irritating. But Walter Harrington had warned Rita if she did not report to him about his wife’s mental and physical wellbeing, he would fire her and have someone else replace her.She’s divorced and hopes that for the sake of their child Annie, she and her ex-husband Steve can remain on reasonable terms. The still prickly Kat has sacrificed any semblance of a personal life in favor of babying tech start-ups into existence. The story ending allows for a heartwarming and satisfying outcome for all the characters we’ve come to adore. The Glass House was a Sunday Times bestseller, Richard and Judy Book Club pick and word-of-mouth lockdown hit. She is also very skilled in creating an atmospheric setting, so it wasn’t really a surprise that I instantly felt transported to Rock Point, the old artist’s mansion on top of a Cornish cliff.

The Birdcage is a mystery/thriller that follows three half-sisters and the backstory leading up to a traumatic event on the day of a total eclipse in 1999. I think it was the writing that made it hard to connect; it was flowery where it didn't need to be and detached where it could've had more spunk. Rita’s parents died in a horrible car crash when she was only six years old, and ever since, she’s always craved a family.

Amber Alton knows that the hours pass a bit differently at Black Rabbit Hall, which is her London family’s country estate, where there are no two clocks that read the same. While he certainly wouldn’t be winning any dad of the year awards, it was easy to see why he was so loved by his daughters (if not their mothers!

Family secrets are my weakness when reading fiction and this novel has the perfect blend of secrets, excellently drawn characters, and an extremely atmospheric setting.The Birdcage’s combination of long-buried secrets and exploration of complex family relationships adds up to an intriguing, well-crafted and satisfying mystery.
