The Owl Service, Paperback / softback Book

The Owl Service Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback

Description

Winner of both the Guardian Award and the Carnegie Medal, this is an all-time classic, combining mystery, adventure, history and a complex set of human relationships.

Featuring a new introduction by Philip Pullman. It all begins with the scratching in the ceiling.

From the moment Alison discovers the dinner service in the attic, with its curious pattern of floral owls, a chain of events is set in progress that is to effect everybody's lives. Relentlessly, Alison, her step-brother Roger and Welsh boy Gwyn are drawn into the replay of a tragic Welsh legend - a modern drama played out against a background of ancient jealousies.

As the tension mounts, it becomes apparent that only by accepting and facing the situation can it be resolved.
