The Nightbird's Song, historical fiction, is set in the mining community of Bisbee, Arizona, and chronicles the lives of the McEvoy and Higuera families, struggling to survive in the Arizona Territory. The nightbird's hypnotic song reminds us that we are strengthened by what we endure.
“Josephine DeFalco’s writing in The Nightbird’s Song is perhaps most notable and memorable for its wonderful rhythm established between the eventful and the mundane—a perfect replication of the natural flow of life conveyed here so very well.”
—Joel R. Dennstedt, Readers' Favorite
