Nighthawkers — Meeting the Unseen and the Unknown
“It’s a beautiful science, full of mystery. Beats the hell out of grinding it out on Wall Street. But when you put it that way, yes, you’re right — again. I don’t plan on digging for the glory of some university, just so they can stick a unique artifact I risked my life to find behind a wall of glass. Or a museum, either, where billionaire trustees walk around drinking champagne and patting themselves on the back for their latest acquisition. I refuse to be just another sap who rolls over for all these high-and-mighty institutions” — Amy L Bernstein, The Nighthawkers
The author Amy L Bernstein in her book ‘Nighthawkers’, talks about archaeology as science and scientific art with its extraordinary capacity to unravel lost truth. She speaks about archaeology as a beautiful science but the way she puts her words for Pauline, the protagonist as an archeologist is very humble and modest. Pauline is an extraordinary archaeologist who wants to reveal truths about the long past. But she doesn’t want to dig into material or mundane earthly structures, instead wants to find the unexplored and the unexcavated. The book is a work of fiction and Pauline Marsh believes she is an unlovable freak. But she is a great archaeologist earning numerous awards and the highest grades in her school. She had the ability to locate ancient artifacts without a map, and commune with the artisans from the past. Suddenly, she meets a handsome man named Grey Henley who made Pauline believe that she was the girl of his dreams. For Pauline, it was love that attracted her and for Grey, it was her skills to locate the unknown treasures that would make him rich one day. But they kept this deal a secret and pushed their relationship to a breaking point. Grey gets help from a criminal relative and Pauline is visited by a worldly stranger with a message. They rediscover themselves in the most unexpected ways. Sometimes destiny is determined by a broken heart and a troubled soul but leads to eternity in a place where you expect it the least. Nighthawkers draws from the facts and stories of archaeology into a thriller novel revolving around love, enemy, and surprise. The twist in the story makes it a good candidate for thriller movies or shows. Amy L Bernstein did a great job in making this novel wholesome with quite many facts as well as a thrilling essence till the end of it.
