Read full description of the books The Hummingbird: A Novel:From the author of the acclaimed The Curiosity comes a compelling and moving story of compassion, courage, and redemption.
Deborah Birch is a seasoned hospice nurse whose daily work requires courage and compassion. But her skills and experience are tested in new and dramatic ways when her easygoing husband, Michael, returns from his third deployment to Iraq haunted by nightmares, anxiety, and rage. She is determined to help him heal, and to restore the tender, loving marriage they once had.
At the same time, Deborah’s primary patient is Barclay Reed, a retired history professor and expert in the Pacific Theater of World War II whose career ended in academic scandal. Alone in the world, the embittered professor is dying. As Barclay begrudgingly comes to trust Deborah, he tells her stories from that long-ago war, which help her find a way to help her husband battle his demons.
Told with piercing empathy and heartbreaking realism, The Hummingbird is a masterful story of loving commitment, service to country, and absolution through wisdom and forgiveness.
Read information about the authorStephen P. Kiernan's new novel, THE BAKER'S SECRET, will be out May 2, 2017.
This novel is the story of D-Day from the French perspective: how the people lived under Nazi occupation, and how they believed the Allies would never come. Led by Emma, a 22-year-old who is determined to help her fellow villagers survive, this is not a story of armies and battles, but of people struggling to keep hope alive by caring for each other.
Stephen also wrote The HUMMINGBIRD, about a hospice nurse whose husband has returned from his 3rd deployment in Iraq with PTSD, and she is determined to help him heal. It is a story about loyalty, patience, and fierce love.
Stephen's first novel was THE CURIOSITY, a scientific thriller and a love story across two centuries. The book came out in numerous foreign editions, and 20th Century Fox bought the film option.
Stephen previously worked for decades as a journalist, winning over 40 awards. His first book, LAST RIGHTS, was an expose on the overly aggressive medical treatment most people receive in the last chapter of their lives, with many suggestions for ways of providing more humane care. His second book, the Silver Nautilus Award-winning AUTHENTIC PATRIOTISM, describes the potential for national renewal through nonpartisan civic engagement and volunteerism.
He lives in Vermont with his two amazing sons.
