By the Author: 

A great war, a great love, and the mythology that unites them; The Hawkman: A Fairy Tale of the Great War is a lyrical adaptation of a beloved classic.

Set against the shattering events of the late 19th and early 20th centuries, at the tale’s heart are an American schoolteacher ― dynamic and imaginative ― and an Irish musician ― homeless and hated ― who have survived bloodshed, poverty, and sickness to be thrown together in an English village. Together they quietly hide from the world in a small cottage. 

Too soon, reality shatters their serenity, and they must face the parochial community. Unbeknownst to all, a legend is in the making ― one that will speak of courage and resilience amidst the forces that brought the couple together, even as outside forces threaten to tear them apart.
