Description

India, 1839: Linny Gow, a respectable young wife and mother, settles down to write her life story. To outside appearances Linny is the perfect Raj wife: beautiful, gracious, subservient. But appearances can be very deceptive ... Born into direst poverty in Liverpool, Linny escapes the life of prostitution her stepfather has forced her into, transforms herself into a young lady, and escapes to India, where the British Raj is in its infancy. There she will find heartache and suffering, but also true love and - perhaps most precious of all - freedom. But how did Linny achieve all this? And what has she sacrificed along the way? Most importantly, is this the end of Linny's journey, or is her story not yet over? THE LINNET BIRD is an enthralling tale of one young girl's destiny and her struggle for happiness and survival.
