A superb winter/Christmas warming read for the Horse Whisperer market.
High in the wastes of northern Canada, a falcon is blown off course by a storm, eventually coming to rest in a sparsely populated region. Her only instinct is to hunt and find a mate; but for the humans who are drawn into her story, she will be a catalyst of spectacular change.
A novel of healing, passion, heartbreak and the possiblity of redemption through the unlikeliest of channels, with magical snowy settings, this is commercial fiction at its best.

‘Tough and tender’
Nelson de Mille
In a remote Canadian town, Susan Baker and her son, Jamie, are trying to piece together their lives shattered by the accidental death of Susan's husband. Things are tough enough; but then a new neighbour moves in.
The return of Michael Somers to Little River Bend causes feelings to run high among the tight-knit community. Fiercely protective of Jamie, and wary of a man whose early life is the subject of countless rumours, Susan cannot help but notice the gentle determination with which Somers nurses a rare falcon injured by a hunter.
Absorbed by the plight of the beautiful wild bird, while all around are caught up min the small town's rivalries and intrigues, Susan Baker gradually comes to confront the possibility of healing, change, and hope. But first she has to know: what is the truth about Michael Somers?
"The story is as tough as it is tender, an exceptionally well-woven tapestry of romance and danger . . . It's very, very good."
"Harrison is set to become a literary star . . . a very good book"
