Bird Cottage

Eva Meijer, Antoinette Fawcett

Len Howard, the daughter of a famous poet, and a successful concert violinist was forty years old when she decided to devote the rest of her life to her true love: birds. She bought a small cottage in Sussex, where she wrote two international bestsellers, astonishing the world with her observations on the tits, robins, sparrows and other birds that lived in and around her house, and would even perch on her shoulder as she typed.

This fascinating novel tells the story of this remarkable woman’s life, how she defied society’s expectations and changed our understanding of bird behaviour. It is also a wonderful evocation of the English countryside and joy that can come from a living, breathing relationship with the natural world around us.
