Talk about H is for Hard. If this wasn’t one of my book club reads I think I would have given up, but I am glad I persevered. It is not an easy book to read but the words on the page are simply beautiful and I now know more about goshawks than I thought possible. I even find myself watching falconry video clips!
Helen Macdonald’s journey through grief after the death of her beloved father made my heart ache. I would like to reread this book slower than my book club deadline allowed. It is something to be sipped at and savoured—like a fine wine. The taste is not for everyone but those who appreciate it’s beauty will be thankful for the experience
