This is a sneaky book, with two plots sidling up to one another over the course of two hundred pages, each compelling in its own right but with connections that are hard to discern. When they finally run into one another, though, that's when you realize how much you care about both, that's when you realize how real the characters have become and how badly you want things to work out for them. And when you read the last pages-- or, as Cullen would say, when one reads the last pages, one is liable to find oneself crying at the front desk of their library, inexpressibly touched by how much a person or a bird can come to mean in the hands of a really great writer.
