I started this book one night intending to read just the first chapter before bed. I had to force myself to put it down at chapter six lest I miss out on a good night’s sleep!
I’ve never been a bird person, but O’Brien’s heartwarming account of her life with Wesley the Owl may make me a convert…for owls at least. O’Brien mixes scientific fact with personal anecdote in a way that is clear and compelling. By the end, you feel like you’ve learned something about owls, but most of all, you’ll have experienced one owl’s life in a unique way.
A tear or two escaped at the end. The Way of the Owl is not always happy, but it is rewarding.
