Wild Within: How Rescuing Owls Inspired a Family by Melissa Hart
Wild Within: How Rescuing Owls Inspired a Family

Sabena, February 10, 2015

Wild Within is an engaging memoir about the author's growing relationships with wild birds: the injured owls and raptors who she works with and falls in love with at the Cascade Raptor Center in Eugene, Oregon. This story is intertwined with the tale of her budding desire and journey to adopt a child. Hart’s book is a narrative about the power of building trust and opening your heart. The writer is so personable and frank that her book often reads like a talk over coffee with a good friend.

The Stone Diaries by Carol Shields
The Stone Diaries

Sabena, July 15, 2013

Carol Shield's The Stone Diaries is a brilliant portrayal of a seemingly ordinary woman's life, Daisy Stone Goodwill, from birth to death, alone and in relationship with her friends and loved ones. Shields has built a story by skillful, honest writing, steadily paced as a needlepoint journal, with characters who are surprisingly, wonderfully engaging, The Stone Diaries is one of my favorite novels, full of life almost too real to believe it's fiction. At the end, I wanted to ask of the author, "How did you do it?"
