Narrator Nan McNamara brings an enthusiastic and relatable voice to this fun and fulfilling story of discovering birding. She expresses the author's transformation with the zeal of someone whose new hobby has taken over her every thought. Effervescent tones and buoyant pacing bring listeners into this new source of rapture in Zarankin's life. Growing up in a family of music enthusiasts, she is no stranger to serious hobbies. Then in her 40s, she finds her "spark" bird, a red-winged blackbird. Changing her life's pattern of perfectionism, birding helps Zarankin accept life's failures, as well the beauty that abounds in her life. McNamara's joyful tone enhances the positive turn the author takes in her testament to living well. S.K.G. © AudioFile 2021, Portland, Maine [Published: FEBRUARY 2021]
