AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Others have crossed paths with birds - shipwrecked seamen; lighthouse keepers; lone yachtmen ... But on this wild and stormy night at her grandfather's place it is Annie who enters the strange and secret world of birds - a world of ancient tradition and alien lore. When an old feud is uncovered, she finds things drawing dangerously close to home.' (Source: Book Jacket)
