A tapestry of romance and danger . . .
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 in 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?
