Summary
When Catherine's lover dies suddenly she has no-one to turn to, their affair had been disguised from their colleagues and his family, except her work. A middle-aged curator in a London museum, Catherine is given a very particular project by the perceptive head of her department. A box of intricate clockwork parts that appear to be the remains of a nineteenth century automaton - a beautifully made mechanical bird. When she discovers that the box also contains the diary of the man who commissioned the machine, she is partially rescued from one obsession by another. Who were Henry Brandling and the mysterious, visionary clockmaker he hired to make a gift for his absent son? And what was the end result that now sits in pieces in her studio?
