In episode 34 of the Hope Book Club, our reviewers explore tender tales of love and loss.
Sea Wife, by Amity Gage – a husband and wife buy a boat and sail around the Caribbean with their two kids in an attempt to revive their failing marriage. A literary thriller with mystery, tragedy and intrigue thrown in.
H is for Hawke by Helen Macdonald – the memoir of a woman who is grieving her father and a memoir of the tenuous, but growing trust between human and hawk as one attempts to train the other.
