Great horned owl Rufus is eight months old and still can't hunt. When his mother is hit by a car, he discovers just how dangerous the forest can be.

Yet this aunt has a wonderful secret: she's a falconer who agrees to help Reenie catch an injured passage hawk in the wild and rehabilitate it. When Reenie traps bedraggled Rufus, his eyes lock onto her heart, and they form a powerful friendship. But can Rufus learn to trust in the outside world and fly free? And can Reenie open her heart enough to truly soar?
