After long, separate journeys, an Iraqi grandfather and his granddaughter arive in England. They live with a relation in Great Yarmouth but find their new circumstances confusing and uncertain, causing the girl to take drastic action. In Norwich a widower is trying to build himself a new life, and his bird-watching and oboe playing become routes to unexpected meetings and events. The Reed Flute vividly depicts a winter journey upstream along the banks of the Yare in which the three main characters are nourished as much by the slow river and the subtle beauty of Broadland as by memory, hope and faith.
