"Strong setting and well-drawn cast of complicated, evolving characters . . . ."
"The story will engage the middle-grade set, but really deserves readers beyond that group as it is so well written and full of universal themes."
San Francisco Book Review
"Twin narratives skillfully woven together make for an exciting and endearing roller coaster of a memoir."
"A delight, an uncommon braiding of family, heartbreak, romance, redemption, and--of course--raptors. In sparkling prose, Melissa Hart has woven a tale as intricate and as beautiful as a bird's nest."
--Lyanda Lynn Haupt, author of Mozart's Starling
