“These essays will stay with you long after you finish. They are beautiful and thought provoking. You will be awed by Macdonald's insights and by the natural world that inspired them. Macdonald's soothing, sophisticated voice, and creates something you can listen to over and over again.”Kristine, Buttonwood Books and Toys
“Helen Mcdonald, author of H is for Hawk, introduces her latest essay collection by describing the idea of Cabinets of Curiosities or Wunderkammer—curated and eclectic collections of objects, often from the natural world that would represent their creators interests and fascinations. This does aptly describe her essays collected here, reflections on a lifetime of obsession with nature, animals and the human relationship to the world around us. At once sad and lovely, Mcdonald's essays are reflective but also encourage humans to look outside ourselves in our engagement with nature.”Rachel, Brilliant Books Audio
“This audio book was my daily meditation. It is the perfect way to wrap up 2020. Soothing and inspirational, I am recommending to all my friends and family. ”Kristine, Buttonwood Books and Toys
“I wish I could give Vesper Flights twelve stars out of five. In this beautiful, loving, poignant portrait of a nature lover’s world — gosh, what an understatement — Helen MacDonald continues to prove herself a nature-writing powerhouse. Her literary skills make her a modern legend, and Vesper Flights is sure to touch as many hearts, if not more, than H Is for Hawk did.”Nikki F, Bookie's
