In this touching novel for ages 10+, Lucy Christopher explores the remarkable bond between a young girl, a boy and a damaged wild bird - a relationship that will touch everyone who reads it. While visiting her father in hospital, thirteen-year-old Isla meets Harry, the first boy to understand her and her love of the outdoors. But Harry is ill, and as his health fails, Isla is determined to help him in the only way she knows how. Together they watch a lone swan struggling to fly on the lake outside Harry's window. Isla believes that if she can help the damaged swan, somehow she can help Harry. And in doing so, she embarks upon a breathtakingly magical journey of her own.

Our customer reviews

This book is truly quite wonderful. Mixing many emotions, feelings and dreams into one, the author has created a marevellous blend. A sudden shock, rushing into hospital, the lonely bird who seems tame, a friendly boy, a school project with a difference and some very special swan wings.... this book is easy to read, gets you involved in the story and keeps you wanting to know what will happen. Almost wants to make you cry, laugh and sigh at the same time! Good story, well more
