This richly textured audiobook continues the interwoven complexities of the Milford-Haven saga, taking the listener on a compelling journey through southern California. While a murder investigation begins in the Central Coast, artist Miranda Jones' research journey takes her from the whales off the Los Angeles coast to the big cats of the Mojave Desert to the backstage drama of a Hollywood Bowl Doobie Brothers concert.
Can whales watch the humans who watch them? Miranda Jones is convinced they can and do. She's looking forward to her day of whale-watching off California's Central Coast. In preparation for a painting commission, she'll be photographing the migrating gray whales.
Can a hummingbird dream? Artist Miranda Jones thinks so. Sensing the tiny injured bird that wings its way into her world still lives, she paints the creature's dream garden and seems to reach into his very heart. She reached into her own heart to create a new life for herself in Milford-Haven, the small town of undiscovered beauty on California's Central Coast, where one of her dear friends is environmentalist Samantha Hugo-a brilliant PhD 20 years her senior who gave up a son years earlier.
