The Gray Heron is a friend and spiritual guide for Leroy, a man who enjoys the simpler things in life while also detesting the mundane. Finding the right balance in retirement isn’t easy, and helping raise two children during old age comes with complications. He takes peace from his feathered companion as he questions whether the bits of happiness in life outweigh the sorrows.
Gray Heron is an interesting read with some thought-provoking themes. The action scenes are well researched and described, and used effectively to break the progression of family events. Characters are well drawn and believable and descriptions of scenery pique the senses well.
Gray Heron, in essence, is a dramatic tryst with destiny. . . . John Wilde pens an intriguing tale of how nature and nurture shape two impressionable minds. The characters are endearing, complex, and hopeful. His narrative has an engaging charm like a southern drawl. —Ruby Mohan
