Talon is the story of Matica, a girl small for her age, and her family. When the children of the village see Matica and her father help Tamo and Tima chase two poachers away, their attitude about Matica changes, and she suddenly becomes a folk hero of the village and her schoolmates.

Matica takes it upon herself to foster Tamo andTima’s offspring for them keeping him hidden in case the poachers should return.   

Matica calls the child of Toma and Tima, Talon. She keeps Talon in her bedroom making sure he is warm and will grow big enough to take care of himself and join his parents in the mountains that are within a couple of miles of Matica’s village.

Matica spends her free time looking after Talon until he is big and strong enough to fend for himself. Will Talon be able to rejoin his parents in the mountains? You’ll have to read Talon to find out.   

Talon is an engaging read about how even you may be small, you can be great, and do great things by helping others.

Readers should pick up a copy of Talon for yourself, and enjoy a good read.

Talon receives five stars out of a possible five stars.
