Adventure is the last thing on Andrea Henderson's mind when she moves to Moses Lake. After surviving the worst year of her life, she's struggling to build a new life for herself and her son as a social worker. Perhaps in doing a job that makes a difference, she can find some sense of purpose and solace in her shattered faith.

For new Moses Lake game warden Mart McClendon, finding a sense of purpose in life isn't an issue. He took the job to get out of southwest Texas and the constant reminders of a tragedy for which he can't forgive himself.

But when a little girl is seen with the town recluse, Mart and Andrea are drawn together in the search for her identity. The little girl offers them both a new chance at redemption and hope--and may bring them closer than either ever planned.

    A delightful story!

    There were several things that caught my attention about this book: It involved a little girl, it was situated in a small cove (country living), it featured a social worker and her work, it was a story about 'a broken family' and a single parent coping with bringing up her child, parents who didn't want to let go, and of course, a bit of romance and mystery. What more could a person ask for? Lisa Wingate did a great job of developing her characters and their environment, as we see Andrea and her son Dustin start their new life in Larkspur Cove at her parent's cottage on the lake. It doesn't take long for 14 year old Dustin to get into some trouble with the neighbourhood kids, and for the handsome, rugged game warden, Mart, to come into the picture as he sees his responsibility to teach the young people the importance of respecting 'the dangers of the water' in the cove. Everyone in the neighbourhood gets involved with anything happening in their community, watching the locals and the tourists who come and go on the lake, the beaches or on the country roads and nothing happens that they don't see from out their windows or from their back decks. If someone is moving around in the cove who wasn't there before, they will know it and investigate it, and the game warden will be notified so he can 'check it out'. Little "Birdie" couldn't hide from the people of Larkspur Cove and Moses Lake, and like loving and caring hens, they took her 'under their wings'. This is a sweet story which you will find hard to put down.
