H Is for Hawk
In the wake of her father's sudden death, the grieving Macdonald turns to raising a goshawk named Mabel, who becomes her obsession, partner and healer. This stunning memoir grapples with history, death and nature in prose so exquisitely wrought, it approaches poetry. By the end, the author finds herself transported and, against all hope, hopeful.
