Where Sparrows Nest Summary

Where Sparrows Nest by Sally Worboyes

In the late summer of 1952, amidst the turmoil of people moving en masse out of Cotton Street to pastures new, Edie Birch and her only child Maggie must say a sad farewell to old friends and neighbours. Edie loves her modern flat on the innovative East End council estate but making a new start is daunting. But she needn't have worried - helped along by the enthusiasm of her flamboyant Aunt Naomi, new friendships are forged and a brighter life begins. Edie even meets a new man. Outside of her happy orbit, however, a dark secret threatens to destroy her world. Aunt Naomi and her not-so-law-abiding friends must join forces to shield Edie. But can they stop the cruel hand of fate from delivering a blow which - at the very least - would expose the shameful truth?
