One of the most captivatng debut novels I have read.The title is taken from an Emily Dickenson poem, the setting is Las Vegas, Nevada. The four main characters would not normally mix yet they find that healing and redemption is not only possible but achievable. Avis, a wife on the brink of a divorce; Luis, a solider returned from the war on terror not wanting to live; Bashkim, an Albanian-American child negogiating between two culures; and Roberta, a child avocate finding solutions to seemingly impossible situations. Based on a real, tragic event on the streets of Las Vegas, this novel is astounding! Great bookclub choice."

A memoir of grief and love so beautifully written that I felt the cold, the loneliness, the fallen feathers of the goshawk Helen Macdonald chose to raise in her London flat. This book has won the Samuel Johnson Prize, is a Costa Book of the Year, and a must-read. Macdonald is a writer, a poet, historian, naturalist and affiliated research scholar at the University of Cambridge. Destined to be a classic.
