Another great read from Kimberly

H is for Hawk by Helen Macdonald

hawkKimberly says: “I borrowed the audio version of this from hoopla while I was doing some gardening and it kept me riveted for days. Macdonald is an effective reader of her own memoir–her British accent lending itself perfectly to the setting. She recounts the sudden loss of her father, her desire to raise a goshawk named Mabel, and her childhood fascination with birds, falconry, and T.H. White’s book The Goshawk. It is a good deal of material for one slim book, but she weaves all these threads beautifully. Her descriptions of grief are insightful and just about everything she describes relating to hawks was completely new information to me. It was fascinating.”
