Paperback
Rate this:

Even the approach to Christmas fails to excite restless Agnes Conway, the twenty-two-year-old manager of the sweet and tobacconist shops owned by her feckless father. There are dark secrets in Arthur Conway's past, and these come tragically to light when Agnes's younger sister falls pregnant by one of the notorious Felton brothers. And Agnes herself has a secret, which she knows she must keep from her father: her relationship with Charles Farrier, son of a local landowner, who outrages his own wealthy, pious family by proposing marriage.

However Charles is not the only man who could shape Agnes's furture, as his brother Reginald makes no secret of his admiration for her. But she could not have foreseen how significant a part he is to play in her destiny...

The Wingless Bird is an absorbing story of love and the harsh realities of Britain's class system.

I loved the movie. Book is in a way explaining the movie. Very easy read. Couldn't put the book down. I would recommend for romantics. I give it thumb up! Enjoy.
