Description

'For you, I will write of it all - part truth, part memory, part nightmare - my life, the one that started so long ago, in a place so far from here...' India, 1839: Linny Gow, a respectable young wife and mother, settles down to write her life story.

To outside appearances Linny is the perfect Colonial wife: beautiful, gracious, subservient.

But appearances can be very deceptive ...An unforgettable book, richly descriptive and mesmerising from the start, The Linnet Bird is the spellbinding story of the journey of Linny Gow - child prostitute turned social climber turned colonial wife turned adventuress.

Frequently disturbing, often moving and always enthralling, it is that rare thing: a once-in-a-lifetime read.
