Extremely commercial first novel 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
Michael Somers has kept away from Little River Bend for most of his adult life, to pursue an ambitious career. But now all those dreams have fallen apart, he returns to this small North American town with a determination to face his past, and faint flicker of hope for something better in the future.
However, feelings run high among the tight-knit community. Everyone seems to have a reason to shun him, including his neighbour, Susan. On the brink of her first relationship since the death of her husband, fiercely protective of her traumatised son, the last thing she wants on her doorstep is a man rumoured to have committed a terrible crime.
Yet when Michael discovers an injured falcon and resolves to save her from the grip of winter and the greed of hunters, it is the stricken boy, Jamie, who reaches out to him from the ranks of silence. As man and boy grow in confidence, so the secret of Michael's past begins to unravel, setting in motion events that will change life for Susan, and for Little River Bend, forever.
