Title: Cooper’s Hawk
Author: Victor J Banis
Publisher: MLR Press
Rating: 5 of 5 Stars
If love is truly eternal, what lasts beyond the grave — and what form might it take?
Mike Patterson loses his life-long partner, Adam Cooper—and soon thereafter, a hawk appears and seems to hang around with him. Is the hawk a message from Adam, from beyond the grave — or might it be Adam himself, come back to offer solace. A bittersweet tale that will resonate with all who love deeply, a story of the sharpness of grief, the pain of loss — and, ultimately, a story of never ending love.
24 Pages. That is all it took for me to fall in love with the words of Victor J Banis. Cooper’s Hawk is a beautiful tale of timeless love. It is a tale of grief and survival. It is a story of two men who found each other and never wanted to be apart. It is a story that will have you in tears from the opening to the closing words.
As with many shorts, there is not a lot I can say about the plot of this book. I loved Mike. Even in a few short pages, Banis was able to give us a rich character for whom you wanted the best. In the end, that is exactly what Banis gives us. Yes this tale is bittersweet, but it is so full of love and beauty (yes I know I have already said that), it really is a must read.
I would like to thank the publisher for providing me with the eARC of this title in exchange for my honest opinion.

Over the between now (11 Mar 2017) and 31 Mar 2017, every comment on the blog (this post and all other new posts), will be entered to win 1 of these paperbacks. There are also some misc swag items, so there will be a few packs of these to give away as well.
