Summary
When Dad gets sacked from his city workplace for trying to 'save' his workmates, the Birds are forced to leave and move to a small town. Elsdon hopes life will change for the better, but instead the family begins to disintegrate. Communicating with no one except for other so-called 'holy rollers', Elsdon's parents descend into an even more extreme religious fundamentalism, using their son as a whipping-boy for all their frustrations. And when a sequence of disasters finally breaks up the family, Elsdon's amazing resilience and precocious humanity are tested to the very limit
