9780473232184: The Snow Falcon

An extraordinary story of redemption and love. In a small town in the Pacific Northwest, Susan Baker is struggling with the consequences of the death of her husband in a shooting accident, witnessed by her son Jamie, who has withdrawn into introverted silence. When Michael Somers returns to the town where he grew up, provoking resentment and suspicion among the members of the tightknit community, Susan and Jamie are drawn into the middle of a complex drama. Michael is a solitary figure who has spent time incarcerated for something that happened years ago, but which had its genesis long before that, during his troubled childhood. Shunned by the community, Michael struggles to make sense of his life. When he finds a wounded falcon in the mountains, the injured bird becomes a possible route towards redemption and understanding for both Michael and his neighbour’s son, Jamie. The relationship that develops between man and boy, and also Jamie’s mother, Susan is at the heart of the story. However, it is also the spark that ignites tensions among the townspeople and leads to explosive consequences. This is a novel about people struggling with their lives and the things that made them who they are. The characters are forced to confront both their strengths and flaws, and to make decisions that determine their futures. Some choose to face their personal demons, but others refuse to recognise their failings, instead compounding their past mistakes, until they threaten to destroy everything around them.

From the Publisher:

"The Snow Falcon is not an easy novel to classify except to say that it's very, very good. The story is as tough as it is tender, an exceptionally well-woven tapestry of romance and danger. Stuart Harrison is a gifted new writer with a fresh and easy style and the assurance of a seasoned author." --Nelson DeMille

"The Snow Falcon is a grand debut for Stuart Harrison, mixing a sensitive and poignant style with strong elements of suspense. This bird is memorable." --Stuart Woods

About the Author:

Stuart Harrison grew up in England, but now lives in the Bay of Islands, New Zealand. He is the author of five previously published novels, including The Snow Falcon which was translated into twelve languages and became an international bestseller when it was released in 1999. This version of The Snow Falcon has been completely rewritten and revised for release in 2013 as both a print book and ebook. A new novel, The Flyer, has also been released. Set before and during the First World War in England and France, the story is about the relationships between three people. Two of them, Elizabeth and Christopher come from wealthy, privileged backgrounds, whereas William Reynolds begins life as the penniless son of blacksmith. By a quirk of fate, William is educated at a private school, which gives him entry to Elizabeth’s and Christopher’s world. The relationships they form are, however, impacted by the social codes of the time, and the consequences are magnified by the outbreak of war. This novel took two years to write, and is certain to appeal to everyone who enjoyed The Snow Falcon. More information can be found at www.stuartharrison.com where the author can also be contacted.
