A haunting but uplifting story of grief being transformed by the love of a bird of prey called a goshawk.
Ten years ago Helen Macdonald suddenly lost her father to a heart attack. Distraught, she turned to her lifetime love of falconry and retreated into a solitary world to train the wildest bird of prey – the goshawk. She called the bird Mabel and wrote a bestselling book about her journey, H Is for Hawk. Now Helen is considering training a new bird, and feels a lot better about the world than she did a decade ago. It’s time for Helen to let her grief fly as high and as far as her bird, but can she let it go?
