The Partridge and the Pelican
by Rachel Crowther
In the summer of 1983, Olivia and Eve find a baby in a phone box. They are 19, on holiday and about to launch themselves into the world. But the events of that summer cast a long shadow over their future lives.
When they meet after 25 years, the baby in the phone box returns to haunt them and they are forced to confront truths that have remained hidden for a long time.
The Partridge and the Pelican explores the complexities of motherhood, the power of secrets and the enduring ties of friendship.
