I love this book – it is one of my favourites. A boy called Callum is befriended by a wild girl, Iona, in Scotland. They develop a strong friendship and Iona trusts him enough to show him an Osprey nest. They look after the nest until, one night, Iona dies from meningitis. Callum’s last promise to her is that he would look after the Osprey. The story tells how Callum goes to great lengths to make sure that Osprey are safe. It is a heart-warming story and I would thoroughly recommend it.
