A South Carolina bird sanctuary is home to a single father, his ailing daughter and the caregiver who joins their family in this novel of love and healing.

Burned-out and unsure of her next step, E.R. nurse Ella Majors accepts a position as caregiver to Marion Henderson, a frightened five-year-old with juvenile diabetes. But Ella soon realizes there is more sorrow in the isolated home than the little girl’s illness can account for. Harris Henderson, a single father, seems better able to deal with the wild birds he rehabilitates in his birds-of-prey sanctuary than with his own daughter.

Then something magical begins to happen: the timeless beauty of the South Carolina coast and the majestic grace of the wild birds weave a healing spell on the injured hearts at the sanctuary. But a troubled mother’s unexpected return will test the fragile bonds of trust and new love, and reveal the inherent risks and exhilarating beauty of flying free.
