Product description

Product Description

Set during the First World War, this is the story of 22-year-old Agnes Conway, who seems destined to look after her father's sweet shop while her more attractive younger sister garners attention from the local men. However, when her sister becomes pregnant by a working class boy, Agnes discovers skeletons in her father's cupboard. She is swept off her feet when Charles Farrier proposes to her (against the wishes of his wealthy family), only to fall for his brother Reginald when he returns from the war.


Based on the novel by Catherine Cookson, The Wingless Bird stars Claire Skinner as Agnes Conway, a working-class shop assistant who dreams of moulding herself into an aristocrat. The ambitious Agnes befriends the upper-crust Farrier family, but at the same time finds herself mixed up with the notorious Felton family when she comes to the aid of her sister, whose affair with the roguish Robbie Felton threatens to ruin them both.
