A Bird In The House by Margaret Lawrence

I'm looking for a detailed summary of Margaret Lawrence's book "A Birth In The House." It would be nice if the summary contained character descriptions and summaries as well.

Thanks!

The book is not a novel in the traditional sense. It is a series of short stories about a young girl growing up, told from the perspective of her forty-year old self looking back. The last chapter is the forty-year old self revisiting her childhood home. You can find summaries here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/A_Bird_in_the_House
