Synopsis

It is 1792 and Europe is seized by political turmoil and violence. Lizzie Fawkes has grown up in Radical circles where each step of the French Revolution is followed with eager idealism. But she has recently married John Diner Tredevant, a property developer who is heavily invested in Bristol's housing boom, and he has everything to lose from social upheaval and the prospect of war. Soon his plans for a magnificent terrace built above the two-hundred-foot drop of the Gorge come under threat. Diner believes that Lizzie's independent, questioning spirit must be coerced and subdued. She belongs to him: law and custom confirm it, and she must live as he wants. In a tense drama of public and private violence, resistance and terror, Diner's passion for Lizzie darkens until she finds herself dangerously alone.

Staff Choice

Historical fiction is where my heart is, and Helen Dunmore is a master of the art. Birdcage Walk shows how huge events ripple through people's lives and pulls the political and personal together all within a taut claustrophobic set of relationships.

Gorgeous writing and an absorbing plot; curl up with it and enjoy!
