When Callum’s friends find a ragged girl, Iona, trespassing on Callum’s farm, they chase her away – and Iona runs high into the hills. It is late and dark, and snow lies in the mountain gullies. Worried for Iona’s safety, Callum follows to find her. But Iona is guarding a secret. A rare and precious osprey is hidden in the high forest above the dark waters of the loch. And when Iona and Callum make a pact to protect the bird, it is a promise that will change Callum’s world forever… Soar far above the clouds in this enthralling tale of friendship, loyalty and hope, as you follow the majestic sky hawk from Scottich lochs and glens all the way to the African jungles.
