A great war, a great love, and the mythology that unites them. The Hawkman: A Fairy Tale of the Great War is a lyrical adaptation of a beloved classic.
Set against the shattering events of the late 19th and early 20th centuries, at the tale’s heart are an American schoolteacher—dynamic and imaginative—and an Irish musician, homeless and hated—who have survived bloodshed, poverty, and sickness to be thrown together in an English village. Together they quietly hide from the world in a small cottage.
Too soon, reality shatters their serenity, and they must face the parochial community. Unbeknownst to all, a legend is in the making—one that will speak of courage and resilience amidst the forces that brought the couple together even as outside forces threaten to tear them apart.
This is an amazing retelling of the Grimm fairy tale "Bearskin". The author did an amazing job capturing details for the time period this book is set in. She is truly a gifted storyteller. This book is another one that I am going to buy new.
This is a book that I will be buying brand new. I will definitely be re-reading this book over and over.
