Gentle suspense. Tortured heroes. Mischievous heroines.

Crows: like swans, they mate for life, but while swans have become powerful literary symbols, the connotations of these rather fearful, black birds are quite different. Like Amanda, I failed to see the poetry or beauty of crows, until Corvid, Amanda's former fiancé pointed this out in his own special way. This poignant short story conveys a powerful message about loving, trusting and sharing. Beautifully told - I felt uplifted by it.

With subtlety and effortlessly, the author weaves a wonderful short romance story around the need to enroll a parent into a nursing home. A daughter is at wit's end trying to care for her ailing mother, and decides to take a desperate measure. But someone from her past steps in to offer an alternative. Nicely done!

I really enjoyed how Ms Hopper, through her well-crafted short story, so clearly conveys the emotions of the tragic, yet commonplace drama of putting one's elderly parent in a home. I especially liked how this dramatic event is contained within a bigger romantic story arc. The use of a deaf character also added another layer of humanity to the touching story.

I highly recommend Listening To Crows. It will brighten a reader's day. I know it did mine. I look forward to reading more of Ms Hopper's fiction.

Inexpensive carpet sweeper. When pulling out the vacuum isn't worth the effort.
