I Heard the Owl Call my Name

I Heard the Owl Call my Name is a wonderful book.  It is a book about an Anglican vicar who is sent to a parish of indigenous people in Canada.  Unbeknownst to him, he has a terminal illness.  The title comes from a belief that when one hears the owl call one’s name, death is imminent.  I don’t see it quite that way.  I have found that, in my life, when I encounter an owl, life change is imminent.
