Skyward

.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....

Publisher's Summary

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.

    "interesting: Birds & low country"

    The story was great in the facts about birds, the rest of the story was a bit slow... a potentially great story with a little tighter edit.

    "Educational and interesting"

    I really wanted to give this 4 plus stars, maybe not 5, as I reserve five for books that I really feel are special and tell everybody I see that they have to read it also. It is definetly worth the credit. It takes place at a bird of prey clinic, each chapter imparts factual information about the raptors. I also learned more about diabetes. The characters were strong and the narrator did a good job of depicting each one. It started just a little slow as I was coming down off a really riveting, intense listen. Thoroughly enjoyed and would recommend.
