By Doug Diaczuk

A Circle of Birds by Hayden Trenholm

Circle of Birds

By Hayden Trenholm

Winner of the 15th annual 3-Day Novel-Writing Contest

A Circle of Birds is an impressionistic, finely wrought tale of lost memory, tangled history, despair and discovery. It is a journey through much Canadian and world history; a mind-melting descent into mental illness, a sordid yarn of death and twisted love.
