E.R. nurse Ella Majors has seen all the misery that she can handle. Burned-out and unsure of her next step, she accepts the temporary position as caregiver to Marion Henderson, a frightened five-year-old who suffers from 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.

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Megan | 8/7/2010

    " This was alright. The writing was inexpert, which took away from an otherwise nice story. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mich | 6/23/2010

    " it had to be the 'bird' thing. while i tho't it was good, i just didnt think it was as good as 'the book club'. i dont regret reading it i probably wouldnt say it was one of the best of hers "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Dee | 5/29/2010

    " I've read and enjoyed Mary Alice Monroe about the Carolina low county, so I'm trying another.

    I thoroughly enjoyed Beach House by this author. I can't say the same for the book, however.

    Maybe I'm just not that into bird sanctuaries. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Barbara | 4/27/2010

    " Well done, characters and setting varied. I did feel it was just a bit too predictable. Then, I suppose most of these books follow a format. It just would not do to have an unhappy ending, would it? "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Alex | 1/2/2010

    " You get an education in birds (raptors) and at the same time a good story. "

    " Once again Mary Alice Monroe has managed to capture my love for South Carolina! I was able to bond with the characters and the story. It was almost like I could smell the southern air :) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Janice | 11/18/2009

    " I need a feel good book after reading Deadlock. I love the lowcountry and would live on the beach in North or South Carolina if I could afford it. I learned a lot about birds of prey in this book and juvenile diabetes. It was really good. "

    " I always enjoy Mary Alice Monroe. I also love the lowcountry and would love to live in the area. She makes me more aware of nature. I learned a lot about birds of prey in the book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Gayle | 9/24/2009

    " this writer writes kind of romance combined with nature books and I learned something from every book she wrote. This is a light read, a quick read and i enjoyed it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lauriej | 5/6/2009

    " More Mary Alice Monroe. What can I say? I like sitting on my deck and reading and her books are perfect for that. This is probably my least favorite, although still very enjoyable. Just felt like it wrapped up too quickly. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Carla | 4/7/2009

    " Interesting facts about raptors at the beginining of each chapter. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kathy | 4/4/2009

    " Another great read by this wonderful author. Her quest to save the birds in the book is truly inspiring. She is an advocate for all the wild animal life on the planet and you can tell by her extensive research and her participation in saving them. "
