Publisher's Summary

In the spirit of Lisa Jewell and Kate Morton, an emotional mystery set in the rugged remote landscape of north Cornwall full of dark secrets and twists, about three unusual sisters forced to confront the past.

Some secrets need to be set free…

When half-sisters Kat, Flora, and Lauren are unexpectedly summoned to Rock Point, their wild and remote Cornish summer home, it's not a welcome invitation. They haven't been back since that fateful summer twenty years ago—a summer they're desperate to forget.

But when they arrive, it's clear they're not alone. Someone is lurking in the shadows, watching their every move. Someone who remembers exactly what they did...

Will the sisters be able to protect the dark past of Rock Point? Or are some secrets too powerful to remain under lock and key?

Critic Reviews

“Eve Chase does it again! The Birdcage is glorious; a bittersweet, beautifully written, slow burn family drama with a killer kick in the closing chapters. I loved every word of it.” —Lisa Jewell, author of The Family Upstairs 

“Atmospheric and twisty: think Daphne Du Maurier for the modern day.” —The Sunday Telegraph

“Eve Chase never disappoints. The far west of Cornwall is evoked in all its wild and mystical glory in this lyrical and propulsive family drama about three sisters whose lives have been overshadowed by a tragedy on the day of the 1999 eclipse. Chase conjures up a bohemian, artistic world filled with damaged daughters and their charismatic, largely absent and narcissistic father. Immersive, tense and ultimately redemptive, while I was reading, it held me completely in its grip.” –Sarah Vaughan, author of Little Disasters

The Birdcage by Eve Chase

I forgot to write my review about this audio recording at the time I finished it...😏
I remember that it is about 3 half sisters, their artist father and at least one of the girl's mother. A great painting called The Birdcage is the center of the story as is the house 🏠 were the father lives. The girls used to visit the house in the summer, that is how they got to know each other. Something happens one summer ☀️ and that is a secret that effects everyone. Not my favorite Eve Chase book, but not horrible either. 😎

Give it until the end

At first I was disappointed it wasn’t “as” historical as Ms. Chase’s other novels, but by the end I loved it. Characters so well done, so accessible, and relatable by the end. The narrator is great for this novel. I finished it in 2 days.

STUNNING

Exquisitely choreographed, both narrative and performance, a dance from present to past, past to present, weaving in and out and back again, across time and space. Simply, stunning.
