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

“The complex relationships between three half-sisters, their mothers and their artist father are painted with compelling psychological depth in this extraordinary and gripping masterpiece. The treacherous Cornish coast is the setting for a cleverly narrated unravelling of the past and the myriad ways in which it has shaped the present. It’s like an Old Master portrait that gives away more secrets with each viewing. Eve Chase’s best novel yet—and the bar was already sky-high.” —Gill Paul, author of The Secret Wife 

“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
