When young Otis loses his mother, a hawk comes into his life. Is she a spirit, sent to look after him, or just a bedraggled bird in trouble? It becomes an important question for Lissa who is relunctantly looking after an eight year old boy who thinks he’s a shaman. In this tender narrative about several kinds of loss, a sometimes complicated friendship between two lonely children offers healing…a fresh story told in clean, unaffected prose. More than that, though, it is a gift of uncommon wisdom.”
