My favorite kind of reading is books that combine nature, adventure, and stories of actual people. This book exceeds the mark! I highly recommend that you give this one a read. As most of you already know I am a birder, so it stands to reason I would love this book.
I promise not to ruin the read by telling you too much about the book. But I do want you to get an idea of the book so that you will seek it out. You will be glad you did. The story begins with Melissa Hart who is living in Eugene, Oregon trying to recover from a divorce. She owns two cats and two big dogs and frequents the dog park. She meets a woman who she becomes friends with there. Because Melissa has relocated after her divorce she is without much social support. Also she meets Johnathon, a photographer who volunteers at the local raptor rehabilitation center.
A bonus to reading this book is you will also learn a lot about various raptors and what it is like to volunteer at a raptor rehab center.
Have you read a great bird book - one you'd recommend to others?
This book was an enjoyable and memorable read.
MBC, Me, too, I also appreciate books blending adventure and nature with stories of actual people. As an observer of raptors, I am happy about their inclusion in such a heartwarming story. It's amazing what leads where, such as helping to pick up 600 pounds of frozen rats!;-0
Yes, you will LOVE this book! A great read.
What a well done review! It did its job because it got me to thinking about reading the book. I really liked that you highlighted the intertwining of the themes
