The Parrot Tree tells the story of Vivien, a talented young Englishwoman in 1980’s suburbia who escapes the loveless marriage which suffocates her creativity, to find professional fulfilment and romance in Madison Avenue. It is also the story of Karl, a tortured genius who as a boy fled the Nazis in the sewers below Bratislava, became gardener to an Austrian baron, fathered a beautiful but illegitimate daughter, emigrated to New York in the 1950s, and eventually founded his own advertising agency.

The Parrot Tree.   When I first started reading this book I thought it was going to be a confusing story  but what a brilliant surprise. It told you so many different stories of all the characters – some heart breaking and some very funny. A true love story with many twists and turns.

The Author. Barbara Kastelin has written a really gripping story that I thoroughly enjoyed.  A very talented writer.  I look forward to the next one.
