  1. I can easily see how birds offered solace for the author. My own obsession with birds is part of my love of nature but also a form of therapy, a way to get away from it all without going far away. I’m sure I will enjoy this book.

  2. Thank you so much for telling us about it. I clicked your link and bought it.

  5. Beth Hoffman says

    I loaded this treasure on my iPad, planned to read a few pages, and then get back to work. Well … those few pages swept me into Kephart’s memoir with a force I hadn’t experienced in years. Her words and the imagery they evoked took my breath away. There were even parts that gave me the sense of magical realism, which, I believe, speaks of the mystery and transition of death. What a gem!

    • Beth: I’m so glad that you enjoyed it. I really was swept away by this one. She’s a real talent in this genre. Too hard to break away from it to do other things and to break away from the emotion of it.
