Captivated by a chance meeting with a falconer's peregrine as a child, the indelible memory leads the author to flying a peregrine falcon of her own and discovering that the journey is not as much about training the falcon as what it is the falcon has to teach her. Lift asks universal questions through the unique perspective of a woman chasing her heart in the wake of a wayward falcon. "O'Connor (Falcon's Return) crafts a lyrical tribute to the spiritual connection between humans and birds in this memoir .... O'Connor packs a lot of intelligence, poise and feeling into a few pages, making this a consistently rewarding read." ~ Starred Review, Publishers Weekly, November 2009 (DanaVinke)
