Joseph F. Girzone is the author of the best-selling novel Joshua. His work Kara, the Lonely Falcon, a thought-provoking story of a creature at odds with his very nature, has been in print for over two decades. A moving parable about gentleness and self-sacrifice, it continues to inspire millions of fans. For ages, all Kara has known is hunting and killing his next meal, but one day something changes within him. A new kind of hunger is growing, one in his heart. He can’t quite explain it, but he makes a vow to never kill another living thing. Kara finds his hunger sated by a presence he is intimately aware of, but cannot see. As he grows into his new-found compassion, he begins making preparations for his next important journey. Girzone’s powerful personifications bring this tale to vivid life.
