I'm posting from home today and surrounded by books. An old favorite caught my eye as I looked up at the shelf. A heartbreaking love story that I think would make a bittersweet movie. I just HAD to post more than one sentence, forgive me. Here's an excerpt from The Falconer by Elaine Clark McCarthy - pg 56
"She wanted his hands to reinvent her skin, she wanted his eyes to find her there behind her face and release her.

She wanted her heart thrown into the sky; she wanted to fly.

She wanted it before the dark closed in. So much dark and so soon."

Here's the blurb:

For all of her thirty-seven years India Blake has lived a life of difficulty and loneliness: first an alcoholic mother whose needs ate up her youth, then an empty marriage with a man who couldn't be faithful.

Only after being told she had, at most, a few months left to live, did she meet Rhodri MacNeal, the falconer. Has some perverse destiny kept her from finding love until her time is nearly up? Or did this passion come too late because of some flaw within herself?

India is afraid she'll die before she learns to understand her life. And she must know: Was her brief, intense time with the falconer merely meant to tease her with a taste of what she'd always missed, or had she, by some miracle, found a love to last forever?

As she lies wakeful on her last night, the heroine unflinchingly examines her history and relives the love that seemed to lift her above it, searching for an explanation that will let her face death without bitterness.
