The House of Birds
The House of Birds | Morgan McCarthy
2 posts | 3 to read
Morgan McCarthy's THE HOUSE OF BIRDS is a beautiful and bewitching story of love, war and second chances that will be adored by readers of Louisa Young and Virginia Bailey. Oliver has spent years trying to convince himself that he's suited to a life of money making in the city, and that he doesn't miss a childhood spent in pursuit of mystery, when he cycled around the cobbled lanes of Oxford, exploring its most intriguing corners. When his girlfriend Kate inherits a derelict house - and a fierce family feud - she's determined to strip it, sell it and move on. For Oliver though, the house has an allure, and amongst the shelves of discarded, leather bound and gilded volumes, he discovers one that conceals a hidden diary from the 1920s. So begins a quest: to discover the identity of the author, Sophia Louis. It is a portrait of war and marriage, isolation and longing and a story that will shape the future of the abandoned house - and of Oliver - forever.

I kept pulling all kinds of books trying to find the one that felt like it was calling to me. I think I've settled on The House of Birds.

The Last of the Greenwoods comes in second...☺️

I'm not a fan of dual timelines novels or if mysterious diaries found in abandoning houses, but l do like a good story of self-discovery.

Should l get this?
