I really liked this book. I fell in love with Wesley, even though I realize we could never have been friends. lol. I learned a lot about Barn Owls and their devotion to the ones they love. I was sad to finish this one.

Stacy O'Brien, a biologist at CALTEC research facility, gives a home to a disabled owlet that could never be realeased to the wild. 19 years of co-existance, love, and companionship. She sees the intelligence, loyalty and ultimate honest of Wesley and his Way of the Owl.

The fuzzy little owlet on the cover caught my eye, so I thought I would give this a try. I laughed, I cried, and I learned alot about barn owls too. What an amazing experience Stacey O'Brien had, and lucky for us that she shared it. The photos in this paperback are black and white, they don't do Wesley justice. You can see how beautiful he was in color photos on his website http://www.wesleytheowl.com/
I guarantee you will fall in love with him like I did.
