Description

The brilliant new novel about love, war and the ways of escape

Shot down on his first RAF mission, James Hunter, an English officer, spends the Second World War in a German POW camp. While other prisoners plan daring escapes, James begins studying a pair of redstarts near the camp. His interest in the birds captures the attention of the Kommandant, giving James cause to fear for his life. Meanwhile, back in England, James's young wife, Rose, falls headlong into a passionate affair with another man. When James's sister, Enid, loses everything during the Blitz in London, she comes to stay with Rose, and the two women form a surprising friendship that alters the course of all three of their lives.

Humphreys, the award-winning and bestselling author of six novels and two works of non-fiction, returns to the Second World War with her most exquisite, powerful novel yet. The Evening Chorus is a brilliant evocation of an unforgettable time and place and a natural history of both the war and the human heart.
