As Mistress of Birds begins, Adam has had a long hard decade. He enlisted in 1914, was made a temporary gentleman (an officer) in 1916, and in 1917 was sent home with disabling shell shock. He was sent from place to place, with some improvement - but not nearly enough by his famiy's standards. As the book begins, he's been sent off to help his Uncle Benjamin, as his uncle is recovering from a bad leg break.
